mary and martha

"As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet listening to what he said. 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!"
"Martha, Martha," the Lord answered, "you are worried and upset about many things, but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her." Luke 10:38-42

i guess martha was really alright, serving God and all. for so long, i've distracted myself from the things around me. so much to do, keep doing keep doing keep doing and the it never ends.

afterall, you don't judge how spiritual someone is by the amount of things he does. but i did and up till now i still do.
