Martha hurried and scurried
About all the details she worried.
The meal must be perfect she thought
While Mary listened as Jesus taught.
Martha asked Jesus a question.
“Can you give Mary a suggestion.
Please tell her to help me with the guests.
I’ve worked until I’m feeling stressed.”
“Martha, Martha, don’t worry and fret
Or live a life filled with regret.
Mary has chosen the better part
To listen and give me her heart.”
He wanted Martha to learn
Her heart for God must yearn.
She should be still and wait
And on His word meditate.
