“And so I’ve come to believe that this passage is not a case of either/or but of both/and. While the work that Martha is doing is valuable and necessary, and must be done, so is the contemplative part that Mary plays sitting at Jesus’ feet, listening to him and learning from him. Sometimes when we’re the busiest, that is when we most need to pay attention to Mary and stop being Martha for a little while.”
