Matthew 9:35-38 NIV
Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”
I love this little passage. The harvest is ready, indeed, it is plentiful. God will send workers when we ask him for them to join us. Do we notice that we are not excused from our part in bringing the harvest home. Maybe we could do just a little harvesting; Find One, perhaps.
Point me to the harvest fields, Lord Jesus. Amen.
