“The Better Way”

“The Better Way”

Ivy Parker, Director of Discipleship, shares a message based on the story of Mary and Martha preparing for a dinner with Jesus that encourages us to make the choice to not neglect fellowship with Christ over mundane duties and chores in life.

Scripture: 

38 Now as they went on their way, Jesus entered a village. And a woman named Martha welcomed him into her house. 39 And she had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet and listened to his teaching. 40 But Martha was distracted with much serving. And she went up to him and said, “Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me.” 41 But the Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things, 42 but one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her.” (ESV)
