Mary and Martha
“Jesus, please tell Mary to help me with my chores
I need her to peel potatoes and mop up the floors.
I know she hangs onto every word you have said
But, could you tell her to set the table and make up her bed?”
Jesus said to Martha so tender and sweet,
“Mary’s tears from her eyes has washed my feet.
This day she has revealed the burdens of her soul,
And I’ve healed her broken heart and made her whole.”
Then Jesus looked deeply into Martha’s eyes,
“Martha, Martha do you realize…
how you strive for things in life?
I know your desire for it burns like a fire
To someday become a wife.
Caring for your family, always needs to be done
However, Mary has discovered that I’m God’s Son
She has chosen to give Me honor, this very day
And her reward shall never be taken away.”
