Luke 10:38-42 - Lectionary Gospel Lesson for Sunday, July 18, 2010

This is my own translation of the lectionary gospel lesson for Sunday. Please make any comments concerning the passage you want. Together, let's discuss the Word of God:

************

38As they were going, he went into a certain village. And a woman named Martha welcomed him. 39And she had a sister called Mary, and after she sat at the feet of the Lord, she continued to listen to his words. 40But Martha was continually dragged away by much service. After she came up [to him], she said, “Lord, you care that my sister left me alone to serve, don’t you? Then speak to her so that she might do her part with me.” 41But the Lord answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and disturbed concerning many things. 42But there is need for one thing. For Mary picked out the good portion which will not be taken from her.”
