M&M: The tail end of Luke 10

Why are there so many Mary's in the Bible?
Apparently Mary has its origins in Hebrew and means "the perfect one." That seems to fit in this particular instance particularly well.

Forest People. Trees people.
Martha got stuck on the trees.

What is the "one thing" that Martha should be focusing on?

If I traded it all
If I gave it all away for one thing
Just for one thing
If I sorted it out
If I knew all about this one thing
Wouldn't that be something
- Finger Eleven, "One Thing"
(Wow. Just watched the video and there's some crazy imagery happening there. Allusions to the Crucifixion. Eve and the Tree of Knowledge. Plus the whole general idea of life as a game. I'm going to watch it again.
