Have you ever wrestled with whether to pray or whether to act? I propose that both are needed in the body of Christ in this hour. We need both Mary and Martha to come together in a powerful convergence.
Are you motivated by love from a pure heart? Are you a “burning one” or a “burned-out one”? Compassion ministry, or whatever you want to call it, can be very draining and exhausting. But it doesn’t have to be. It depends on your motivation and your approach. It should not drive you, but rather God’s heart should lead you. Do you see the difference? Do you live the difference?
“Thus says the Lord of Hosts: Execute true justice, show mercy and compassion, every man to his brother. Do not oppress the widow, orphan, sojourner, or poor. And let none of you contemplate evil deeds in your hearts against his brother” (Zech. 7:9-10).
Needed: A Convergence of Mary and Martha
