Luke 10:39 Commentary - Expository Notes with Practical Observations on the New Testament

Observe, 1. Both these sisters were holy and devout women, both had an honor and reverence for Christ, and both are forward to entertain him; these were sisters by grace as well as by nature; yea they both for a time attended upon Christ's preaching. Mary (also) sat at Jesus' feet, implying that Martha sat there too, until household occasions called her away.

Oh how happy is that family, where all parties are agreed to receive and entertain the Lord Jesus Christ!

Observe, 2. No sooner is Christ entered into Martha's house, but he falls a preaching; while they provide bodily food for him, he prepares spiritual bread for them.

Oh that in our place and measure we might all imitate Christ in this: can we come into any house or company, and find nothing to say or do for God?

Observe, 3. The holy and humble deportment of Mary upon this occasion: She sat at Jesus' feet, and heard his words. When Christ was speaking, Mary was hearing, and little things could not take her off.

Lord, how carefully should we take the present opportunity for our souls, to hear and learn of thee, as Mary did. She was not sure of another opportunity, therefore hears humbly, attentively, and affectionately, as if it were her last hearing season.
