Mary of Bethany’s secret

Maggie Seepi

I have been reading a bit about Mary of Bethany and her sister Martha.

As I was scrolling down my Facebook news feed I came across a quote by J.C. Ryle that reads, ‘Let us seek friends  that will stir us up about our prayers,  our bible reading,  our use of time,  our souls and our salvation.’ The quote stayed with me ever since.  It did not only get stuck in my mind but it also got me thinking about the friends that I keep and how I choose them. I am one person who believes in friendship.  I value friendship and it is usually never easy for me to…
