Early one evening a gentleman went out to his garage and
pulled the lawn furniture out onto the driveway.
Shortly after followed the lawnmower, a few gardening tools
and a bicycle.
A curious neighbor wandered over and asked if he was
going to have a garage sale.
"No," replied the gentleman, "my son just bought his first car
and right now he's getting ready for a big date.
He'll be taking the car out soon to pick up the girl."
"So what's with all the stuff?" asked the neighbor.
"Well, after years of moving tricycles, toys and sports equipment
out of the way every time I came home from work, I wanted to
make sure the driveway was properly prepared for him."
37 Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is
plenteous, but the labourers are few;
38 Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will
send forth labourers into his harvest.
LIGHT from the WORD.
There are many things that can happen to a field of grain
ready for harvest: hurricanes, tornadoes, locusts, blight,
mildew, drought, etc.
Even though those things can, and do, happen to a field,
we still need laborers to gather the harvest at the appropriate time.
Though difficulties come, sowing will still lead to reaping!
Also, there are many things that happen to a spiritual harvest:
greed, lust, envy, pride, thievery, murders, adulteries, etc.
But Jesus promised that the spiritual harvest is still "plenteous!"
There is still a LOT to be brought in!
Hurricanes and tornadoes are brought into the fields by
The "locusts" of the devil's legions try to erode the fields.
The "blight" of evil's growth eats away at hearts who may believe.
Mildew and drought are brought on by unconcerned and
Our prayer must be for "laborers!"
We need strength in the laborers that ARE!
And we need ADDED laborers with a zeal to gather!
And, we must have the assurance and hope that we
SHALL GATHER if we seek to reap!
The "LORD" of this harvest is Jesus Christ!
He is the One Who has committed to Christians the task of gathering.
He is the One Who can strengthen us for the work.
And He is the One Who can add "to the church daily such as
should be saved." (See Acts 2:47)
Let us PRAY daily with assurance and hope!
And, let us WORK daily for our Master!
