Because she thought she had to… and other false myths

Helen Frankenthaler, “the List”

“I don’t believe Martha simply chose cooking or housework over the Lord.

When she begged the Lord to make Mary help her,
what she was really saying
was,   “Notice me Lord!” she wanted Him to see her.
Martha longed for acknowledgment
and love, and was willing to do anything to get it..
it isn’t that she wanted to be

working. It’s that she thought she had to….”
