I'm a Martha ... I want to be a Mary

There's a story in the Bible of two sisters, Martha and Mary. Both of them loved Jesus, but in quite different ways. Martha was a hard worker and it was important to her that the house was clean and there was food on the table - the epitome of hospitality and service. Mary just wanted to sit at the feet of her Saviour and soak in who He was. She wasn't nearly so concerned about the things around her -- her priority was her relationship with Jesus.

Most of the time I'm a Martha - busy doing things. But in my heart I long to be more of a Mary. I want to be able to drink in the full scope of my Saviour's love for me and make my relationship with Jesus a priority in my life.
