Mary & Martha

February 5, 2016

Martha: Martha.

 

Mary: Mary.

 

Martha: Doer.

 

Mary: Listener.

 

Martha: There is space in the day to act, to turn The Word into flesh and bear witness to the call of faith that sends me into the world to love my neighbour.

 

Mary: There is space in the day to stop, to pause long enough to hear a word that holds and renews me and tells me all I do is held in the offering of heaven.

 

Martha: Doer.

 

Mary: Listener.

 

Martha: Live out The Word, the word that says: “I was hungry and you gave me food, thirsty and you gave me a drink.”

 

Mary: Listen to The Word, the word that says: “Be still and know that I am God.”

 

Martha: Jesus took the bread and fish, gave thanks and fed the multitude...

 

Mary: You cannot live on bread alone but by every word that comes from the Lord...

 

Martha: Who is my neighbour: the one who helped them man: then go and do likewise…

 

Mary: Only one thing is needed and this one has chosen the greater portion and it will not be taken from her…

 

Martha: Don’t just sit there, do something

 

Mary: Don’t just do something, sit there.

 

Martha: Doer.

 

Mary: Listener.

 

Martha: Follower of Christ.

 

Mary: Friend of the Saviour.

 

Martha: Both doer,

 

Mary: And listener,

 

Both: We are the same
