“Martha and Mary
As they traveled along, Jesus entered a village where a woman named Martha welcomed Him into her home. She had a sister named Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to His message. But Martha was distracted by all the preparations to be made. She came to Jesus and said, Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her to help me!’
‘Martha, Martha,’ the Lord replied, ‘you are worried and upset about many things. But only one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, and it will not be taken away from her.’”
I can have a “Martha” relationship with God that contains so much busyness, even good busyness like Martha’s, that I can’t detect that it is absent of intimacy. In fact, in a Martha-type relationship with God, I can be moving so fast that I can’t tell that I actually have resentment towards God.
