Mary was paying attention to what Jesus was saying. Martha was busy serving Jesus. Martha got upset that Mary wasn’t “helping”.
Jesus wants me to listen to Him first.
There is plenty of time for serving. Jesus knows this. He wants the serving to come from listening.
Jesus wants me to have a heart for God and His word. Love of God comes first. Jesus wants me to have priorities.
Martha, dear Martha, you’re fussing far too much and getting yourself worked up over nothing.” ~~Jesus (Luke 10:41-42 The Message)
