Mary and Martha
Antioch Arcade(Grades 1-2)
“Be still, and know that I am God” — Psalm 46:10 (NRSV)
Martha was busy and worried. It wasn’t fair that Mary just sat around listening to Jesus! Martha complained, but Jesus said she worried about too many unimportant things. Mary had chosen best.
When do you think it’s easiest to talk to and listen to God? While you’re watching a movie or listening to music? Or when you’re praying or at church or Faith Quest? Write or draw a picture of a time when you can stop and listen to God.
