I have no idea why the story of Martha and Mary brings to my mind Gilligan’s Island and the age-old guy’s thing, who would you choose, Ginger or Maryann?
Today’s Gospel reading from Luke 10:38-42 is the story of Martha and Mary. Mary sits at the feet of Jesus listening to his every word and Martha is preparing the meal to serve it. Martha asks Jesus to tell Mary to help and Jesus says … “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 am both Martha and Mary and probably a little of Ginger and Maryann. When I am Mary though, I am more at peace and my life makes more sense. I choose Mary. Have a blessed Sunday!
