Many Hands Make Light Work
"These were his instructions to them: 'The harvest is great, but the workers are few. So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send more workers into his fields.'" Luke 10:2
There is an old saying I heard from my mother's lips many times when corralling her children to snap beans, weed the garden, or other such family chores; that is, "Many hands make light work."
It's true in God's Kingdom, too.
This morning, five adults and one three-year-old packed 84 boxes for Operation Christmas Child in just about an hour. To put that into perspective, I packed boxes by myself the week before, and only packed 16 in the same amount of time. Many hands do make light work.
In God's Kingdom, this principle is no less true, and there is so very much work to be done! We need more laborers, more workers in the fields.
Ephesians 4:16 tells us, "He makes the whole body fit together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love."
We can all do something to spread the gospel message. Every person has a gift and a job to do so that others may know Jesus, personally.
Have you asked God what He wants you to do to share the gospel? Have you asked Him what your special part is--the part that helps the others grow?
If you ask Him, He will answer (Psalm 4:3).
