Reading: Matthew 9:35-38
35 Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and illness. 36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. 37 Then he said to his disciples, ‘The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. 38 Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.’
Thought: The Harvest that God desires most of all is that of compassion, the compassion that drives us to serve our communities through sharing God’s love in word and deed. As Jesus found then we find today, there is so much need. Let’s pray for labourers in love and strive to play our part.
Prayer: Lord, raise up a workforce to share your good news today and sign me up too!
