learning from Martha

in a perverted way more important
learning from our mistakes, from Martha
how not to live, to be led astray
learning from Martha, what not to do
her worry, her trust not in God
following the rules fervently
seeking to serve to the exclusion
knowing perhaps this was the Messiah
but held by hidebound laws
not seeking the Master, to be with Him
only seeking to serve, to offer
hospitality, not worship
when standing before our Lord.
