|Like many people, I have a celebrity crush.|
But a statement this person made acted as a mirror to me - and it got me thinking about aspects of my personality.
Those who are Biblically minded will know the story of Martha & Mary from St. Luke's Gospel. Basically, Jesus came to the home of Martha & Mary to teach, and Martha was scurrying around fixing the meal and tending to the details of the visit, while Mary sat at the Teacher's feet to listen to Him.
This disturbed Martha, who asked Jesus, "Don't you care that my sisters has left me here to do all this work? Tell her to help me!"
And Jesus said to her something to the effect of "Martha, you are always worrying about these details. Mary here has chosen the better part, and nothing will ever take that from her."
Well, I'm a Martha. Not much of a Mary.
And the world doesn't like Martha. The world likes Mary.
My celebrity crush (even though he is male - and of course, I am female) has the *spirit* of Mary about him. He has been guided by the spirit, not getting hung up on fussy details. I think this is why he's regarded as being extremely cool and laid back as a person.
I wish I was more like that.
