From, Captivating by John and Stasi Eldridge...
"Okay, we've all heard the story. Martha and Mary. Don't be such a Martha. Got it."
(So, it bothers me to just put those 3 short sentences out there...I'm more of a take things in context girl...which, I guess, is the point of this meme to see how funny it can be to pull something out of the air. But, anyway, here's the whole paragraph...just in case you wanted to know what in the world those 3 sentences are about ;)
Okay, we've all heard the story. Martha and Mary. Don't be such a Martha. Got it. But we've often wondered what the "one thing" was that was needed. Some of you might have heard teaching that it was one simple casserole dish, that Martha was busy making a complicated meal when only one simple food was needed. No. That is not what Jesus is saying. Jesus has again spoken straight into the heart of the matter. The one thing that is needed is a captivated, adoring heart, a heart that responds to the extravagant love of God with worship.
alright, i'm tagging melissa, nicki, and christy alley. get to it, girlies ;).
