Harvest Field

"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.'"   Matthew 9: 37 & 38

We are in the thick of harvest right now and it is so true about the "workers being few."  I am so thankful for the bountiful harvest but there just isn't enough time in each day to finish all of the work that needs to be done.  Even though I feel as if there isn't enough time, I still find this work so satisfying and fulfilling. 

The bible commentary states that the word "harvest" was used to symbolize evangelism and preaching rather than teaching.  It is interesting in these verses that we are to "ask the Lord of the harvest" - this is something that we should be praying about.  We should not just be praying about what our job should be in this heavenly harvest but also we should be praying and asking God to send out more workers.

Lord please show us what you want our harvest job to be and please send out new workers to the harvest field.
