Jesus and friends - Mary, Martha and Lazarus

Luke 10:38-42 NIV

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.”

1. Homes are different

 

2. Personalities are different

Romans 12:6 NIV
We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us.

 

3. Priorities are different

Matthew 6:33 NIV
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things
will be given to you as well.

4. But... Needs are the same

1 Samuel 16:7 NIV
But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his
height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People
look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”
