There are two characters for today’s word pictures, Mary and Martha. Create a separate picture for each one.
We are not to criticize Martha’s service, but to learn the importance of keeping our service to God in proper focus.
Analyze each woman’s weaknesses and strengths. Compare the hospitality of Martha and Mary. Was one sister better than the other?
Did Mary and Martha work as a team? Can two people working together be more effective than when working alone.
Have the class tell what they admire about Mary and Martha, or about someone else they know.
