And She Fell at His Feet

The Background

“Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me.” (40b)

“Martha, Martha,” Jesus answered, “you are anxious and troubled about many things, but one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her.” (41–42)

“Leave her alone, so that she may keep it for the day of my burial. For the poor, you always have with you, but you do not always have me.” (7–8)

“The poor you always have with you, but you do not always have me.”
