A Daily Leadership Essentials Quote
from Veritas Leadership Journal at HeartPathJournal.net
by David J. Hall
The difference between Mary & Martha during Jesus’ visit (see Luke 10 & Matthew 7):
🔹Martha was serving Jesus, but Mary was encountering Jesus.
🔹Martha was doing good things, but Mary was doing the PRIMARY thing.
🔹Martha was being hospitable to Jesus in her home, Mary was being hospitable to Jesus in her heart.
🔹Martha was concerned about what her guests might think of her less-than-perfect hospitality, Mary was concerned with what Jesus wanted to do in her own life.
🔹Martha recognized the special influence Jesus had in their social gathering, Mary recognized the special influence Jesus was having in her own heart and soul.
🔹Martha was good at seeing people’s needs and recruiting others to jump-in, Mary was good at seeing the PRIMARY need and personally drawing near to Jesus for fulfillment.
