God is revealed to unpretentious people, Luke 10.19-24. And the account of Martha & Mary, Luke 10.38-42.

“Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. 

 20. Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven. 

 21. In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight. 

22. All things are delivered to me of my Father: and no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and he to whom the Son will reveal him. 

 23. And he turned him unto his disciples, and said privately, Blessed are the eyes which see the things that ye see: 

24. For I tell you, that many prophets and kings have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.”  

Martha & Mary

Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house.

3939. And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus’ feet, and heard his word.

4040. But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me.

4141. And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things:

4242. But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.”
