My cousin shares some good thoughts about Mary and Martha in Luke 10:38-41.
Let’s appreciate that Jesus did not criticize Martha for working. He did not want her to stop working only to stop worrying. Jesus knows that we need to love God with all our “strength” sometimes too. Jesus’ experience with Mary and Martha has been used many times to criticize workers and complement readers but spiritual balance was there with them. Jesus wants us to love God with all our “heart and soul and strength.”
