MARTHA, YOU ARE TROUBLED “As they continued their travel, Jesus entered a village. A woman named Martha welcomed Him and made Him feel quite at home.” Luke 10: 38-42 This much-preached-about little interlude is an eye-opener to the character, gifts and attitudes of these two sisters and the way they expressed their worship of Jesus.
