Luke 10:41-42 But the Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and distracted by many things; there is need of only one thing. Mary has chosen the better part.”
Maybe we ought to imitate both of these women. Martha is a real servant leader. If we are like her, we will prepare our house, our inner selves, for Jesus. And if we are like Mary, we’ll follow our hearts to do the one thing needful: listening to him. That will make us vulnerable; it will make us go against the customs of the day. And it will save us!
