Meanwhile his disciples urged him, “Rabbi, eat something.” But he said to them, “I have food to eat that you know nothing about.” Then his disciples said to each other, “Could someone have brought him food?” “My food,” said Jesus, “is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work. Do you not say, ‘Four months more and then the harvest’? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest. Even now the reaper draws his wages, even now he harvests the crop for eternal life, so that the sower and the reaper may be glad together. (John 4:31-36 NIV)
Prayer: LORD, enable me to see the spiritual harvest that is all around me. The opportunity to reach others for You is a great privilege and is something I can do for someone that has eternal consequences. Lead me to those who need me, help me understand what to do, and give me strength and courage to do it. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
