Across the nation it is summer harvest season; farmers are looking to hire extra workers to help them get their crops out of the field and to the market. Farmers make up only 1.5% of the population in the United States, but the need to feed people is always growing.
Matthew 9: 37-38 says this, Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.”
Jesus tells His followers specifically that the harvest is plentiful. There are people out there longing for a Jesus that they don’t yet know; longing for hope and peace. What will you do? Will you answer His call to the fields? Will you go out and labor in His name to the hearts that are ripe for the harvest?
Pray about it. Seek His guidance and His will. Answer God’s call, because the laborers are few. How can you serve God’s people through the LWML? You can find ideas how to get involved here.
