Dear Friend in the Lord,
Christian Living: In today’s Gospel, Jesus emphasised the need to live meaningfully and wholesomely. However, like Martha’s good deeds, not everything is according to God’s Will. Ponder on, “Do we have clear priorities and the desires to live the goal and purpose of our lives in Christ-like ways?”
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus came to a village, and a woman named Martha welcomed him into her house. She had a sister called Mary, who sat down at the Lord’s feet and listened to him speaking. Now Martha, who was distracted with all the serving said, ‘Lord, do you not care that my sister is leaving me to do the serving all by myself? Please tell her to help me.’
But the Lord answered, ‘Martha, Martha;’’ he said, ‘you worry and fret about so many things, and yet few are needed, indeed only one. It is Mary who has chosen the better part, it is not to be taken from her.’
