"In quietness and in confidence"

In the home of Martha in the village of Bethany nearly two thousand years ago, a dinner was being prepared for an honored guest. Jesus of Nazareth was there, sharing with the household the truths revealed to him by his heavenly Father. At his feet sat Martha's sister, Mary, drinking in each word.

As Mary listened in rapt attention to the Master, Martha came and complained to Jesus, saying, "Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me." Luke 10:40; After compassionately rebuking Martha for her absorption in mundane matters, the Master said, "But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her."
