You’re likely familiar with the passage in the Bible where the sisters, Martha and Mary, entertain Jesus in Martha’s home. Mary decides to sit at Jesus’ feet attentively listening to Him. Martha complains to Our Lord that Mary has left her alone to handle all of the serving. What Jesus says after that is very important. He eventually tells Martha that Mary has chosen “the better part,” and that it won’t be taken from her. “Better,” but not “only.” In other words, Martha’s busyness, and Mary’s contemplation of Jesus, are both good. We’re all called to live each of those roles to some extent in our lives. Of course, Jesus calls some men and women to be more of one than the other. If you were to reflect on your life as a follower of Jesus, would you say you relate more to Martha or to Mary? Let’s talk about this on Thursday’s show.
