Mary and Martha

Mary and Martha – Luke 10:38-42


Jesus was in Bethany when Martha opened her home to Jesus.  Mary was at Jesus’ feet listening to Him teach.  Martha was busy doing housework getting the meal ready.   She became very annoyed that Mary was not helping and asked Jesus to get Mary to help her.  Jesus told her that she was worried about many things.  He then told her that the most important thing was to listen to Him which Mary had chosen to do.  This would not be taken from her.  The lesson we can learn to not get worried over the small things and miss the real things of life and that those things have to do with Christ.
