LUKE 10: 38-42 (NIV)
38 As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. 39 She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. 40 But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!” 
41 “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, 42 but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”

JOHN 11:21-27 (NIV)
21 “Lord,” Martha said to Jesus, “if you had been here, my brother would not have died. 22 But I know that even now God will give you whatever you ask.”
23 Jesus said to her, 
“Your brother will rise again.” 24 Martha answered, “I know he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.” 25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; 26 and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?” 27 “Yes, Lord,” she replied, “I believe that you are the Messiah, the Son of God, who is to come into the world.”

LUKE 10:38-42 (NIV) 

38 As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. 39 She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. 40 But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!” 
41 “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, 42 but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”

OBSERVATIONS ABOUT MARTHA
1.     Distracted with “much serving.” (KJV/ESV)
2.     May have wanted to sit at Jesus’ feet, but her actions show that she believed serving Him was more important.
3.     Wanted to please Jesus with her service.
4.     Believed that her service to Jesus and His disciples should be the standard.
 OBSERVATIONS ABOUT MARY
1.     Focused with much “sitting.”
2.     May have wanted to serve Jesus, but her actions show that she believed being with Him was more important.
3.     Wanted to please Jesus with her presence.
4.     Willing to disappoint others by her devotion.
“He was not pleased that she should think to please him with a rich and splendid entertainment, and with perplexing herself to prepare it for him…He would teach us, as not to be sensual in using such thing, so not to be selfish in being willing that others should be troubled, no matter who or how many, so we may be gratified.”

“The many things she was troubled about were needless, while the one thing she neglected was needful.” - Matthew Henry

MARK 9:35 (ESV)
35 And he sat down and called the twelve. And he said to them, “If anyone would be first, he must be last of all and servant of all.”

ROMANS 12:6-7a (NIV)
6 We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; 7 if it is serving, then serve.”

MARK 10:42-45 (ESV)
42 And Jesus called them to him and said to them, “You know that those who are considered rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. 43 But it shall not be so among you. But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, 44 and whoever would be first among you must be slave of all. 45 For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
