While Jesus and his disciples were traveling, Jesus entered a village where a woman named Martha welcomed him as a guest. She had a sister named Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet and listened to his message. By contrast, Martha was preoccupied with getting everything ready for their meal. So Martha came to him and said, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to prepare the table all by myself? Tell her to help me.” The Lord answered, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and distracted by many things. One thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the better part. It won’t be taken away from her.” (Luke 10:38-42, CEB)
We all have roles defined for us by society. And those roles are not necessarily the best ones for us at any given time. Those are the roles that will have society give us a pat on the back and say we are doing a good job, but they may not be what is best for our soul or for the community around us.
Society norms and roles are based on what society deems is correct at this time. Like colors now are boys are blue and girls are pink but many years ago boys were pink and girls were blue. Times change and society’s rules change.
The best place for you always is where God says you should be.
Listen and follow where God is leading.
Loving People. Loving God.
