Luke 10:38-42

Mary was sitting at Jesus’ feet listening to His words (39)
Martha was “distracted” with her preparations (40)
distracted, to draw from around, instead of being drawn to
“Lord, you do not care” - Believing a Lie
“Sister left me to do all the serving alone” - Attacking others
has left gives the impression Mary did serve
“Tell her to help me” - wrong about the solution

Martha, you are
anxious, be anxious for nothing,
bothered, turmoil - cast all your cares on Him
Mary has chosen that good part that cannot be taken away
