Who was Martha?

Maybe you know someone named Martha and maybe you don't. But you've probably seen a lot of people like the Martha you can read about in the Gospel of Luke in the Bible.

Have you ever known someone who rushed about doing good things but didn't always take time to do what was most important? Well, that's what this Martha was like—until Christ Jesus taught her an important lesson.

This happened when he came to visit the house where Martha lived with her sister Mary. This was in a town called Bethany, near Jerusalem. Jesus was good friends with Martha and Mary, and with their brother Lazarus. He loved them all very much. So when he stopped to visit, it must have been a special time.
