Click here for today's reading

38 Now as they went on their way, Jesus entered a village. And a woman named Martha welcomed him into her house.
39 And she had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet and listened to his teaching.
40 But Martha was distracted with much serving. And she went up to him and said, "Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me."
41 But the Lord answered her, "Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things,
42 but one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her."

Too often I'm a Martha... I need to be more of a Mary somedays...

  1. Luke 10
    21 In that hour the Holy Spirit filled Jesus with joy. Jesus said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, for hiding these things from wise and intelligent people and revealing them to little children. Yes, Father, this is what pleased you.

    25 Then an expert in Moses’ Teachings stood up to test Jesus. He asked, “Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?”
    26 Jesus answered him, “What is written in Moses’ Teachings? What do you read there?”
    27 He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind.’ And ‘Love your neighbor as you love yourself.’”
    28 Jesus told him, “You’re right! Do this, and life will be yours.”
    29 But the man wanted to justify his question. So he asked Jesus, “Who is my neighbor?”

    36 “Of these three men, who do you think was a neighbor to the man who was attacked by robbers?”
    37 The expert said, “The one who was kind enough to help him.” Jesus told him, “Go and imitate his example!”
