Matthew 9:38b Therefore ask the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.
Jesus needs laborers for the harvest to take care of the myriad tasks of bringing life to others. Jesus asks us to be those laborers. My sister—a recipient of long-term help—returned to her role as one of Jesus’ laborers as an art teacher who collaborates on art/faith retreats with her church community and volunteers to do art with inner-city children.
How very meaningful to be a laborer in Jesus’ harvest.
MOVING FORWARD: Is there someone in your life who could use a magic ice chest? Find a way to share your harvest and bring life to another laborer.
Today the Church remembers Bernard Mizeki, Catechist and Martyr in Mashonaland, 1896.
