Rethinking Mary and Martha

| | Comments (0)

The Bloke in the Outer corrects a common misinterpretation of the Mary and Martha story in Luke 10. People too often assume that everything Mary does is better than everything Martha does and thus falsely conclude that doing things is inferior to listening to Jesus, as if you can listen to Jesus without serving him. The contrast here is between, on the one hand, enjoying Jesus' presence and, on the other hand, worrying about all sorts of things while acting as if you're not in the presence of the most important person in history. It's not between adoration and action, because true worship must involve both. (Hat tip: Christian Carnival LXXIV)
