The image we often have when we think of the story of Mary & Martha is Mary sat at the feet of Jesus. Yet when we look closer we realise it is actually a story about a conversation between Martha & Jesus. Mary is talked about in the story but she never talks. Was she even present? Martha wanted Jesus to challenge her sister but instead Jesus challenges Martha by gently getting to the heart of her frustration with her sister. Martha needed to understand that Mary’s life was not meant to revolve around Martha but Jesus. Mary had in fact chosen the right portion & Martha had to learn to do the same.
Reading: Luke 10:38-42
