The story of Martha and Mary teaches us about a more important kind of work that begins with sitting at Jesus’ feet. Comparatively, all other work is, well, BS.

Perfection

Perfection personified is careful but not cautious. She burned her hands too many times before she learned to pay attention. She discovered that her greatest strengths grew out of her strongest weaknesses. Just like St Paul says: “Whenever I am weak, then I am strong.”

A Childlike Pause

The other day at a pond by my house I saw a boy who stopped suddenly to look at the sailboats. Nothing special about them, except the boy was experiencing a moment of God’s presence in beauty.

God Provides

A scripture reflection on God’s providing to us always. The Bible has many examples of this, including from the 1st readings in the 19th and 17th Sundays of Ordinary Time: 2 Kgs 4:42-44; 1 Kgs 19:4-8
