Why Is It ALWAYSMe!!!

This Sunday was the Gospel, Luke 10: 41 – 42, of Martha and Mary…that famous Gospel of Martha feeling a little tender about being the only one working. She has been working in the kitchen preparing to serve our Lord while her sister Mary sits at Jesus’ feet. Martha feels cheated, perhaps a little betrayed, the old: why am I ALWAYS the one who gets the grunt work, kinda thing; it is something I know I have felt more than once as a mom; why is it no one can ever ________________.

But read this portion of the Gospel as if Jesus is speaking to you, personally, and see if it just doesn’t shake up something in you:

The Lord said to her in reply,
“Martha, Martha, you are anxious and worried about many things.
There is need of only one thing.
Mary has chosen the better part
and it will not be taken from her.”

I know it did in me!
