The very foundation of Mary & Martha is found in our mission statement, “Women Building Women Up in Faith & Business."
It takes both, one-hundred percent faith and one-hundred percent business working in perfect harmony together for Mary & Martha to fulfill our mission and vision for this time in history. This is the very DNA of Mary & Martha.
Our president, James Barnett, sums it up this way:
Our motivation is ministry
Our method is business
Our message is Jesus
Our vision is to bring eternal hope and encouragement to every home every day. We do that through five foundational pillars of Mary & Martha:
Our mission, our vision and our five pillars all stand on one foundational element, Love.
Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one as a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. And above all these, put on love which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in your richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. Colossians 3:12-17
Love is essential for our business to hold together in perfect harmony. Colossians 3:12 clearly expresses, it is through having a compassionate heart, through extending kindness toward one another. We do this through humbly and meekly having patience with one another and through forgiving each other as the Lord has forgiven us, so we also must forgive. And verse 14, highlights the most crucial element at the heart, “And above all these, put on love which binds everything together in perfect harmony”.
Reflecting on verse 14, “And above all these, put on love which binds everything together in perfect harmony. “Love over All.” Colossians 3:14 instructs us to “Put on Love.” Love is a Choice… Love is Action!
At Mary & Martha, our heart’s desire is to be in perfect harmony, to enable us to better live out our mission of women building women up in faith & business, and help us to fulfill our vision, to bring eternal hope and encouragement to every home, every day.comments powered by Disqus
