Matthew 9:35-10:1,5

Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” Jesus called his twelve disciples to him and gave them authority to drive out impure spirits and to heal every disease and sickness. These twelve Jesus sent out.

Sight with insight

Why does Jesus see people as sheep? How are people harassed and helpless like sheep without a shepherd in our culture?

How could this Psalm speak to people in our culture?

Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

What can we learn from Mr. Shige being on the lookout at Tojinbo Cliffs about looking and learning?

compassion with action

How has God used you to see someone and reach out to them in love?

Our assignment this week is to keep our eyes open, our hearts sensitive and be ready to act on God’s leading. Let’s be ready to share our stories at our next meeting.

asking with tasking

Why does Jesus see people as a harvest field? Why does Jesus ask us to pray for harvest workers, instead of just praying for the harvest?

The ones who are told to pray for harvest workers are the very ones Jesus then sends out as harvest workers? What does that say about how prayer functions in the life of a believer?
