Harvest Time

today's reading.
Matthew 9:27-38    And as Jesus passed on from there, two blind men followed him, crying aloud, "Have mercy on us, Son of David"...

think about it.
What are some of the needs Jesus saw (9:27-35)? How did He react (9:36)? What charge does He give His disciples (9:37-38)? What needs do you see? How do you react to those? What can you do today to become one of those laborers in the harvest?

the blog.
I write/talk a lot about our need to share the Gospel, and that's ultimately where Matthew 9:27-38 ends, with Jesus telling the disciples that the harvest (people who don't yet know Christ as Savior) is plentiful, but the laborers (Christ-followers spreading the Gospel) are few. As much as I don't like it, it's still that way today.

So, fellow laborers, what does Matthew 9:27-38 (Jesus' miracles and his discussion with the disciples) show us about the world, how we treat others and our attitude about eternity? How can we use what we see in this passage to help us witness to others? Tami W.
