Are you a laborer? If you are, you have a heart for the people. You have a heart to help others. They're not many laborers though. Matthew 9:35-38 speaks to plentiful harvests, but very few laborers. That's what Jesus told the disciples when He was moved by the people -- the lost souls, who were treated harshly and were helpless. That means they were probably having a difficult time, mistreated, and underestimated by the people who came into contact with them. That was unacceptable to Jesus and it should be to us too. Where are all the grinders for Jesus? The laborers? He wants us to help the lost, because they need us to point them in His direction. If we want a plentiful harvest, we're going to have to labor and there's no way around that.
So, I ask you again, where are all the laborers? There's a plentiful harvest to be gotten. Are you willing to do whatever it takes to get the harvest Jesus refers to? We all have a people we can help based on our walk and our testimony. "Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest” (Matthew 9:38).
