Martha was a homemaker, clever and swift.
She always tended to be oddly busy.
Everyone said that she had a gift
For handling with ease what would make others dizzy.
Mary didn’t want to work so much,
She wanted to take a break
From work, home and such
To listen to Jesus for her soul’s sake.
Neither woman was wrong,
They both loved the Lord,
But one was a servant to make others strong,
The other was a student of the Word.

Where’s your center of action? Are you a soldier on the field or a soldier of the soul?
