At harvest time, a farmer’s entire focus is on getting the crop in from the fields. Ripe produce will spoil if left in the fields too long. Jesus challenged His followers to be similarly aware of the spiritual harvest around them. Like a hardworking farmer, we must remain diligent and focus on reaching out to the people God has set before us. I wonder what “fields ready for harvest” are before you and before me? May we heed Jesus’ loving instruction: “Open your eyes and look at the fields!” (John :4:35)
Prayer: Open my eyes, Lord, to the field You have set before me. Prepare me for the work of harvesting and give me joy in serving You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
