Occupied FOR or WITH Jesus?


Martha in the kitchen, serving with her hands;
Occupied for Jesus, with her pots and pans,
Loving Him, yet fevered, burdened to the brim,
Careful, troubled Martha, occupied for Him.

Mary on the footstool, eyes on her Lord;
Occupied with Jesus, drinking in His Word,
This the one thing needful, all else strangely dim:
Loving, resting Mary, occupied with Him.

So may we, like Mary, choose the better part.
Resting in His presence--hands and feet and heart;
Drinking in His wisdom, strengthened with His grace;
Waiting for the summons, eyes upon His face.

When it comes, we're ready, spirit, will, and nerve;
Mary's heart to worship, Martha's hands to serve;
This the rightful order, as our lamps we trim,
Occupied with Jesus, then occupied for Him!
