Scripture doe say that He loved the diligence and compassion of Martha and the spiritual hunger of Mary. That seemed so obvious to me. Why are you so sarcastic.
i'm trying to list facts. like your ETRSF -- i have studied math for a couple decades. when you try to make a proof, you start by listing facts. you put those facts together and you look for relations between them. you ask questions about them and see where they lead. so, i look at complex problems like this. i list what i know, what i want to find. i look for paths between these sets. it's a methodology grown out of how my mind has been trained to think, the same way your ETRSF is. for the same reason i recognized from your pattern of indentation representing dependence that you may have had experience writing readable code.
show me which scripture you are talking about in re: Mary/Martha's virtues? i have a guess thanks; see, you put more information into the list, too
And there are many humble human people in the World which goes against your first response.
The LORD knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity.
This is love: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
(1 John 4:10-11)
while were were sinners and enemies and haters of God, at just the right time He came for us.
we're all vain - proud & arrogant & selfish. and we're liars if we say we don't have sin - all of which sin is vanity.
if He doesn't love us in our vanity, we're in trouble. see Ecclesiastes. if there are humble people in the world it's because God has first loved them enough to reveal something of Himself to their hearts, eliciting humility, IM(H?)O
