Sunday Readings: Gn 18:1-10a/Ps 15:2-5/Col 1:24-28/Lk 10:38-42
In Jesus’ admonition to Martha, he is not denigrating active service but, rather, cautioning her about anxiety and worry. Jesus is well aware of the demands of carrying out service in living the Gospel and the anxieties often present in doing so. In the midst of such activity, our attention should always be on Jesus. The one thing necessary is to embrace the Word of God, Jesus himself, with a generous and good heart.
