I have a Martha mentality, but long to unearth my Mary heart.
Martha comes out of the kitchen weary, sweat beading down her brow and wispy hair coming undone to complain of her sister Mary’s laziness. Jesus directly, but kindly tells Martha her striving is done in vain. She is told to do as her sister, to stop the striving and do what is right, which is to sit at his feet.
Can I insert, “I hear you Jesus, but who is going to make the dinner? The kids aren’t going to feed themselves, nor are the disciples helping out in a woman’s world to make the food.” Read more over at Grace Table.
