Making Hay

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. Ever been overwhelmed with trying to get a big job done? You’d think Jesus would’ve felt overwhelmed – he was about to change the world with just 12 men. In fact he said to his disciples in Matthew chapter 9, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few.” But then he says to them, “Ask the Lord for the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” Jesus knew that the haymaking of souls would require many more hands, feet and voices than those 12 disciples. So, his solution wasn’t to fret over his circumstances. Instead, Jesus told them to “pray for workers” — to beseech, beg, implore, and ask God to raise up workers! And guess what? They got an answer, and it’s you; you are the haymaker for which Christ and his disciples prayed. So go out and make some hay; today, share the good news with those who are lost and broken.
