Jesus the guest of Martha and Mary

Luk 10:38-42
38 Now, while they were on their way, he came to a certain town; and a woman named Martha took him into her house.
39 And she had a sister, by name Mary, who took her seat at the Lord’s feet and gave attention to his words.
40 But Martha had her hands full of the work of the house, and she came to him and said, Lord, is it nothing to you that my sister has let me do all the work? Say to her that she is to give me some help.
41 But the Lord, answering, said to her, Martha, Martha, you are full of care and troubled about such a number of things:
42 Little is needed, or even one thing only: for Mary has taken that good part, which will not be taken away from her.
