Jesus knew and understood Martha's distractions that day. From where He sat, He could read Martha's motives as she prepared the dinner meal in the next room. The Saviour's heart must have yearned to deliver Martha from the rigid code that restrained her from joining Him in the parlor. She wasn't physically chained to the kitchen. Iron bars didn't separate her from the Master. It was ironclad manacles of opinion and habit that restricted her.
You know what I mean. We all wear them. Cultural inhibitions, forged through the generations, often keep us from opening our minds and truly listening to the Saviour's words.
