Matthew 9:37-38 (Holy Labor)

05 Jul Matthew 9:37-38 (Holy Labor)

Welcome God now with this LIFE Group Devotion (FB), provided by LIFE Runners (FB).

“Then He said to His disciples, ‘The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few; so ask the master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harvest.'” Matthew 9:37-38 (full readings)

Rob Reflections: In the Pro-Life community we are often, properly, consumed with prayer. Prayer for the unborn child; for the conversion of those in the pro-abortion community; for the parents of the endangered child; for our political leaders; for our own strength. If we apply today’s Gospel passage to our cause then we should also pray for God to inspire more laborers to join the Pro-Life harvest. Imagine if every committed Pro-Lifer recruited just one person to join this vital cause. In rapid fashion we would have an abundance of laborers for an abundant harvest that would grow and yield thirty, sixty, and a hundred fold (Mark 4:3). 

Faith Challenge: Ask one Pro-Life spectator to move from the sidelines to the playing field. Pray for that person to remain a laborer for the Master.

Feast Day: St. Anthony Zaccaria was a true laborer for the Lord. Called to his eternal Home at the young age of 36, in his short time on earth he helped build religious organizations for men, women and married couples with the goal of reforming the decadence so prevalent in medieval society.

Faith Quote: “One who pays heed to the wind will not sow, and one who watches the clouds will not reap.” ~ Ecclesiastes 11:4. (There is no perfect time; the time to act is now.)

Through Christ Our Lord,

* Pray/Fast: Prayer connects us with God’s will & His miracles, changing us & helping others. Fast from things that take your eyes off Jesus. Those who pray together stay together, and close to God!
* Save Unborn (& family): Abortion reality (images)…#1 death cause (23% pregnancies).Prov 24:11 & Jer 1:5. “A great poverty that a child must die that you might live as you wish.” Mother Teresa
* Evangelize:Make room for unbelievers & re-evangelization of self, by way of prayer (relationship) and following Christ’s example of love (service/sacrifice/mercy). Matt 28:19.
