The joy of entertaining Christ

Christ Jesus once dined with two sisters. One of them, Mary, sat at his feet throughout the meal, listening attentively to his words. But while Mary joyously, spiritually entertained Christ, the ideal Truth that Jesus taught, her sister Martha laboriously served the man Jesus.

Some scholars think that Martha felt burdened because she had prepared an unnecessarily elaborate meal. When she complained to Jesus because Mary wasn't helping her serve, he said, "Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things: but one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her." Luke 10:41, 42.
