Mary and Martha (Luke10:38-42)

I love this story.  Brief yet powerful, I never tire of pondering it. It constantly challenges me to evaluate what I'm doing. 

Left unchecked we probably all gravitate towards "Marthism".  Mary keeps pulling us back to where we need to be - remembering that really only "one thing is necessary" (Lk10:42)

"Thankyou Father for Mary's example:  her love for Jesus and her love of the truth. Thankyou for ensuring in Your wisdom that this story has endured even until now to instruct us in the way we should go."

"All that the Father gives Me will come to Me and the one who comes to Me I will certainly not cast out" (Jn6:37)
