Now as they were traveling along, He entered a village; and a woman named Martha welcomed Him into her home. (Luke 10:38)

She had a sister called Mary, who was seated at the Lord's feet, listening to His word. (Luke 10:39)

But Martha was distracted with all her preparations; and she came up to Him and said, "Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to do all the serving alone? Then tell her to help me." (Luke 10:40)

But the Lord answered and said to her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and bothered about so many things; (Luke 10:41)

but only one thing is necessary, for Mary has chosen the good part, which shall not be taken away from her." (Luke 10:42)
