What Is Up With Mary and Martha? - Spiritual Growth Encouragement Series


Bible Verse: Luke 10:38-42
“As Jesus and the disciples continued on their way to Jerusalem, they came to a certain village where a woman named Martha welcomed him into her home. Her sister, Mary, sat at the Lord’s feet, listening to what he taught. But Martha was distracted by the big dinner she was preparing. She came to Jesus and said, “Lord, doesn’t it seem unfair to you that my sister just sits here while I do all the work? Tell her to come and help me."But the Lord said to her, 'My dear Martha, you are worried and upset over all these details! There is only one thing worth being concerned about. Mary has discovered it, and it will not be taken away from her.'”

Reflect and Respond: How can you focus on Jesus rather than your tasks today?

Prayer: Father, let Your Word speak peace into my heart throughout the day. Let me be powered by Your spirit and content to be, not to do. I pray in Jesus' name. Amen.

Lord Jesus, even though I am taken up with lots to do in the garden, around the house, and even in the house, I still long to hear what You have to say. Help me to do all that I have to with joy, with patience and with thoughts of You, so that I never become distracted and harried.
