When people think ministry they think big, they think nationally, globally. Which is wonderful, but most of the time those are things that just involve giving money. Yes Martha-ness earned that money, but it’s not the same.
Very often there is work that needs to be done; hands that are needed to minister not through finances, but through faith.
Many ministries whether on the local or global area struggle with finding people who are willing to give of themselves; whether it be through their time, their skills, or their own knowledge. Marthas are desperately needed on every level: Men and women willing to seek Christ and His work, being Marys to those around them.
We are called to be the body of Christ, as part of His church; to minister to others as He would have us do.
~Saint Teresa of Avila
Wondering what this looks like? It can look different for everyone. Ever heard of soup kitchens? Food banks? Charities? These are all things that can use your Martha, and through your Martha create blessings of Mary.
This Week’s Challenge: What is one thing you’ve been meaning to do on a large scale? Something that will bless someone that you may never even know. Think about how you can accomplish that goal.
