Mary & Martha

Story Suggestions:

Luke 10:38-42

Mary and Martha were two sisters who lived with their brother, Lazarus, in the town of Bethany. Jesus loved this family and He visited them often. He even raised Lazarus after he had died! One time Jesus was teaching His followers at Mary and Martha’s house. Martha was busy working and serving, but Mary was sitting at Jesus’ feet, listening carefully to all His words. Martha asked Jesus to tell Mary to help with the work, but the Lord said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things; but there is need of one thing, for Mary has chosen the good part, which shall not be taken away from her.”
