Mary and Martha

Mary and Martha


In ordinary life we have different roles where we oscillate between Mary and Martha, stillness and busyness. Serving and being servedbalance is where peace is found.


Lord, today as I go through my ordinary routine,
allow me to see you in the faces I serve.
Instill my heart with peace so I may sit in your presence.
Teach me how to serve, and also how to be served.
I surrender all to you.
Your grace is enough for me.


Find one moment today to serve someonein a big or small wayjust as Martha did. Find another moment today to just be as Mary did.
