Better Choices: Mary and Martha

Text
Hebrews 6:10 KJV 1900
For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.
Introduction
Contemplating The Topic
From buying an expensive china set to having a new home built to hiring a band to play at a wedding - at times even the most frugal people may do extravagant things.
We tend to justify our own extravagances over the extravagances of others.
While one person might think it’s crazy to pay more than $10 for a meal, they might also go to a car lot and spend wildly on the higher end vehicles.
We tend to be biased on what we should splurge on and where we should scrimp.
There’s an imbalance often in us on this.
In the kingdom of God, this is also true!
People can be extravagant with their time, prayers, and resources. One person may invest abundant energy and money into a children’s program but may be irritated by the teens who only want to sing in the church and not do much of anything else.
One person might think the pastor needs to change the way he uses his time.
Someone cleaning the church might get frustrated at someone who only spends time praying. And vice versa.
