Then He said to His disciples, "The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest."
The other day I read something relating to this verse and I started thinking about it in a different light. In the past I had the vision of someone who works a lot in a field and then seeing there is so much to do, he feels overwhelmed and asks for more help. I think there is probably some truth to that but it's not what I thought of the other day. There is a sense in that there is lots of work to do and there is always a need for more laborers. Thinking in the context of missions, there is a seemingly unending number of people who need the Gospel.
