Martha showed how upset she was at her sister. She basically asked Jesus to tell Mary to get up and help her instead of just sitting there.
Jesus told her that she was careful and troubled about many things but only one part was needed and Mary had chosen that good part.
How does this affect you? Which one of the sisters are you acting like? Are you acting like Martha did in her hurried work for the Master?

She was stressing and thinking about how much work she was doing -which was more than someone else! She was getting more and more frustrated and upset while she was working...
She wasn't really listening to what Jesus was saying even though she was serving Him food!
