Stop and Listen

What’s similar between the story of Jesus’ “transfiguration” on the mountain and the story of Mary and Martha’s behavior when Jesus was their guest?

In the first, Peter’s response was that he had to DO something:  maybe build some shelters for Jesus and his guests, Moses and Elijah.  In the second, Martha’s priority was on DOING something:  fixing a meal for Jesus and the other guests.

But both Peter and Martha were gently reprimanded and told to just stop and listen to Jesus.  (See Matthew 17:1-8 and Luke 10:38-41.)

Here’s the link to a beautiful song that helps me slow down and listen to the Lord:
