Do you remember the biblical story of Mary and Martha, the two sisters who host Jesus in their home -- Martha focuses on preparing and serving the meal, while Mary sits at His feet, listening and learning? Do you also remember that when Martha says to her guest -- Is it really alright that I'm doing all of attending to you and she's not?, He responds, Yes. "Mary hath chosen the good part." As a study in feminine psychology, I find this story intriguing. We generally consider women to be feminine within the context of a relationship, or when we are giving something (resources or recognition) to someone else.
