Part 2: Mary, the sister of Martha
Today we will read passages about Mary, the sister of Martha and Lazarus. Mary's is an excellen role model in the areas of personal worship and priorites (Luke 10), as well as obedience and belief in Christ's power (John 11). For those of you who are new subscribers: In our Sunday devotionals (Sent Saturday evenings EST, USA time), we present passages with little comment, rather letting the Bible speak for itself.
Luke 10:39-41 (NASB) She had a sister called Mary, who was seated at the Lordâs feet, listening to His word. Butt Martha was distracted with all her preparations; and she came up to Him and said, Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to do all the serving alone? Then tell her to help me. But the Lord answered and said to her, Martha, Martha, you are worried and bothered about so many things. But only one thing is necessary, for Mary has chosen the good part, which shall not be taken away from her.
