The Cult of Martha

Just so, ever busy
a whirlwind of
matching activity
striving for recognition
for everything to be just right

Martha, Martha
why are you worried
Jesus calling out to her
choose to sit as did Mary
sit at the Master’s feet

The cult of Martha
the voice of the enemy,
a little Martha a good thing;
Jesus said Mary chose wisely,
the better path, at Christ’s feet.

about many things.”
