There was a home to which Jesus retreated that was full of hospitality, warmth, graciousness, and friendship. This was the home of Mary, Martha, and Lazarus. This message focuses on the lady named Martha. Martha had many wonderful character qualities. She was orderly, diligent, generous, hospitable, concerned, loving, and faithful. But Martha had an attitude that every lady should examine her life to make sure she doesn't have. This attitude was seen very clearly in the way Martha acted and reacted to Jesus. EVERY TIME THE SCRIPTURES SHOW MARTHA SPEAKING SHE IS REBUKING THE LORD JESUS. Obviously, an attitude that could rebuke Jesus is a wrong attitude that could rebuke anyone! The power of a Godly lady is not in her ability to rebuke, but rather in her ability to wisely appeal. The Martha attitude was an inattentive attitude; an impatient attitude; an intolerant attitude; and an "I'm right and you're wrong!" attitude. Fortunately, the Martha attitude is one that Jesus is able to correct.
