What would Martha do?
So in church Sunday, they did that reading where Martha's in the kitchen, slaving away, while her sister, Mary, is lounging around listening to Jesus.
And when Martha finally says, "Hey, I could use a hand in here," their divine houseguest takes Mary's side.
What's with that?!!
Jesus tells Martha not to worry about housework. Sounds good, but if they all put their feet up, who's going to keep the pita and hummus coming?
If only Jesus had come through with another loaves-and-fishes miracle. "Have a seat, Martha. I've got dinner covered." Or rolled up the sleeves of that seamless robe and pitched in with the dishes.
But nooo. Anybody else find this annoying?
