Jesus and his disciples were traveling and they came to the village where Jesus’ friends Mary and Martha lived.
Martha welcomed Jesus into her home and got busy cooking and taking care of the guests. Meanwhile, her sister Mary sat down in front of Jesus and listened to everything he said. Martha was worried about all the work that had to be done and irritated that Mary wasn’t helping. Finally, she went to Jesus and said, "Lord, doesn't it bother you that my sister has left me to do all the work by myself? Tell her to come and help me!"
Jesus answered, "Martha, Martha! You are worried and upset about so many things, but only one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen what is best, and it will not be taken away from her."
