Now while they were on their way, it occurred that Jesus entered a certain village, and a woman named Martha received and welcomed Him into her house.Luke 10:39.
And she had a sister named Mary, who seated herself at the Lord's feet and was listening to his teachingLuke 10:40.
But Martha [overly occupied and too busy] was distracted with much service; and she came up to Him and said, Lord, is it nothing to You that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me [to lend a hand and do her part along with me]!
But the Lord replied to her by saying, Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things;Luke 10:42.
There is need of only one or but a few things. Mary has chosen the good portion [that which is to her advantage], which shall not be taken away from herJoshua 1:9.
The LORD gave this command to Joshua son of Nun: "Be strong and courageous, for you will bring the Israelites into the land I promised them on oath, and I myself will be with you."Deuteronomy 31:23
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go."
