Household Duties

Here’s Today’s Devotional from The Vine

So they made him a supper there. Martha served, but Lazarus was one of those who sat at the table with him. – John 12:2


A short devotional today, but an important one…

There are some Bible characters that we cannot fail to recognize. We know Martha by her busy serving. Each time we meet her we find her engaged in active duties. She represents those whose love for Christ takes the practical form. Some people like to criticize Martha, but after all, her type of piety is important in this world where there is so much need for service. Beautiful as the Mary-spirit is, it would not do if all were Marys. Who would do all the work that needs so much to be done? A wife and mother, for instance, who spends all her time reading the Bible and in prayer, giving no thought to caring for her family would not make a very happy home.

Apply This To Your Life Today… Don’t let people criticize you if you’re a Martha, always busy. But at the same time, don’t forget to work on being like Mary who spent time at the feet of Jesus.
