Mary and Martha

I love the relatable story of Mary and Martha. I think of Martha getting ready to have a house full of guests; she was probably trying to get every detail just perfect. These were very special guests. And she’s doing it all on her own. Mary is not helping at all, so she is so annoyed with her sister. We have all been there. No one is helping me; I’m all on my own.

And then Jesus says to her, “You are worried and upset over details.” Mary is right to sit and seek Jesus. How many times do we get caught up in the detail of things and forget that God wants our time and attention? To be in His presence is a gift.
