Mary & Martha


A great story in the Scriptures is that of Mary and Martha. Sisters but of different spiritual makeup. Martha was the one who could easily handle putting together the last minute dinner party for 30 in less than an hour. Mary, well, she could pray up a storm. Martha’s strengths of organization, focus on getting the tasks done correctly, maximizing the number of work hours in a day, were just a few of the many talents she had. Mary, well, she could sit and think about the “what if’s” of life, meditate on the Scriptures and find time to rest without worry.

My guess each one of us can relate to these two sisters. Both bright, faithful and whose gifts were needed by all. Both great yet different. Which one are you?
