This week's scripture tells us ... Jesus selected seventy-two and sent them ahead of him in pairs to every town and place where he intended to go. He told them, "The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field. Go! I am sending you out like lambs among wolves." They were to travel light and move with urgency as they worked for the Lord.
Today, the need for Christ-following workers is still in demand. Our wolf-fanged culture will make challenging work both risky and rewarding. Therefore, I do see the value of participating in this work while in the company of others. Back when Jesus first issued these words to those early followers, he sent them out in pairs to help in his ministry. We are not alone in our shared ministry for our Lord. Enlist the help and encouragement of others. It's needed! It's available.
With you on the journey,
