Sunday to Monday | Martha & Mary

As long as we belong to this world, we will remain subject to its competitive ways and expect to be rewarded for all the good we do. But when we belong to God, who loves us without conditions, we can live as he does. The great conversion called for by Jesus is to move from belonging to the world to belonging to God. ~ Henri Nouwen 

We gathered to worship and tried to put our distractions and worries aside so that we might sit at Jesus' feet and listen. Martha was caught up in her ME focus, but Jesus loved her and pointed out that she might join her sister Mary in being Jesus-first focused.
