Matthew 9:35-38, The Message:
Then Jesus made a circuit of all the towns and villages.
He taught in their meeting places,
reported kingdom news,
and healed their diseased bodies,
healed their bruised and hurt lives.
When he looked out over the crowds, his heart broke.
So confused and aimless they were, like sheep with no shepherd.
“What a huge harvest!” he said to his disciples.
“How few workers! On your knees and pray for harvest hands!”
Why do you think Jesus’ heart broke when He saw the crowds “confused and aimless”?
Jesus said there is a huge harvest, but few workers for it.
Do you see yourself as a worker for the harvest?
Among your own friends and acquaintances, who can you envision as part of that harvest?
