Mary or Martha? Luke 10:38-42
Rev. James McJunkin, Jr. Philadelphia Baptist Association Executive Minister
We will look at the lives and the faith of these women and their relationship to their friend, Jesus. We will examine the tension over providing hospitality to guests in the home and the work of preparation. Why didn’t Mary help Martha and why was sitting at the feet of Jesus more important to her. Why was Mary’s choice to listen and learn so important to Jesus that he defended it. Finally we will look at worrying and tending to the stuff of life vs mindfulness.
