What If?

A knock on the door…

“Too busy!” I say.

I’ll just keep on working

Then they’ll go away.

Can’t stop what I’m doing…

No time to chat.

Someday in the future,

I’ll take time for that.

Talking wastes time…

Must get my work done.

No time to visit…

Must be on the run.

I can’t be like Mary

And sit at Christ’s feet.

I must clean the house,

Bake the bread, cook the meat.

But Jesus says, “Martha,

What if today

It was I who was knocking

And you turned Me away?”
