We remember Martha because she mildly rebuked the Lord because He would not tell her sister to help her with serving, but to Martha’s credit, the Bible does say this,

Now it happened as they went that He entered a certain village; and a certain woman named Martha welcomed Him into her house (Luke 10.38).

Martha welcomed Jesus in her house. How many saints do that today? True, she got distracted with serving, but she also hosted the Lord of heaven and Earth in her home.

Questions:

  • When was the last time you invited a non-family member into your home?
  • When was the last time you were invited to a non-family member’s home?
