“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.’
Jesus is of course referring to his spiritual nourishment. We are nourished by what we take in (God’s word, prayer and attending church) AND by what we give out in serving God. We are called to do both. We have to take in to be equipped to give out and what good would it be to take in and not give out?
Jesus says, ‘Open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest.’
Lord, open my eyes that I might see the opportunities you place before me. Amen
