Luke 10:1-2 After this the Lord appointed seventy others and sent them on ahead of him.…He said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few.”
As a teacher, I pray that graduates find paths that lead to satisfying and useful careers, building on the firm foundation of their education. They take so much into the world with them, all the book learning, all the friends they made, all the mistakes they made. No matter what they do, whether they work in shops or schools or offices, I always hope they will see themselves as apostles of clear thinking, respect for the past, creativity, and leadership. They themselves will plant the seeds of the future; and like the seventy disciples, they are being sent out into the world to work in the Lord’s fields.
