Mary and Martha
Gospel Art Picture Kit
Jesus went to the home of His friends Mary, Martha, and Lazarus. Mary sat at Jesus’ feet to hear His teachings, while Martha prepared a meal. Martha wanted Mary to help with the work, so she said to Jesus, “Bid [Mary] therefore that she help me” (Luke 10:40; see also Luke 10:38–39).
Jesus understood how Martha felt, but He told her that Mary was wise in choosing to listen to Him. His teachings would stay with her always. (See Luke 10:41–42.)
When Jesus was at the home of some friends, one of them, Mary, sat and listened to His teachings, while her sister, Martha, prepared a meal. Martha wanted Mary to help her, but Jesus explained that it was good for Mary to listen, since His teachings would stay with her always.
