Mary and Martha: One Thing is Necessary

“And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things: But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.” (Luke 10:41-42 KJV)

This character study of Mary and Martha includes a story we’re very familiar with. But the story (and the characters) are worthy of more time and consideration.

We’ll look into the background of these characters, and other passages where they appear.

Walking in obedience to God often involves a long to-do list. But we also need to sit down at Jesus’ feet and listen. That’s how He will equip us for the work He’s given us to do.

This study won’t be hard, but it will be profitable for us and our walk with Jesus. I hope you’ll join me!
