Bible: Luke 10:38-42

Jesus and Martha

10:38 Now as they went on their way, Jesus 1  entered a certain village where a woman named Martha welcomed him as a guest. 2  10:39 She 3  had a sister named Mary, who sat 4  at the Lord’s feet 5  and listened to what he said. 10:40 But Martha was distracted 6  with all the preparations she had to make, 7  so 8  she came up to him and said, “Lord, don’t you care 9  that my sister has left me to do all the work 10  alone? Tell 11  her to help me.” 10:41 But the Lord 12  answered her, 13 Martha, Martha, 14  you are worried and troubled 15  about many things, 10:42 but one thing 16  is needed. Mary has chosen the best 17  part; it will not be taken away from her.”
