Reading: Luke 10: 38-41
Are you a Mary or a Martha? Do you open your door for others, practicing gracious hospitality, making preparations and being busy when company comes to your home. Or, do you sit with your guests, talking and listening, not worrying about the cleanliness of the bathroom or the amount of food and beverages you have to serve?
Mary sat at Jesus’ feet and listened to him while Martha was out tidying the house and preparing the snacks. Jesus chastises Martha for worrying too much and says Mary has chosen well! We all should practice good hospitality when guests arrive and emulate Martha’s efforts of servanthood. But, we also need to take time to do as Mary did, sit at Jesus’ feet, and listen. Take time to sit at the feet of Jesus and practice spending time each day in God’s Word. You need to take time in prayer and listen for God. You need to gather with others and reflect on your faith lives. What a joy we have to be able to be like Mary, sitting at Jesus’ feet! --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
