Fields Already White to Harvest

The great Teacher, Christ Jesus, was a master of simple language. He drew his sublime lessons from life as it appeared around him. His examples were taken from nature. His figures of speech were drawn from familiar everyday things that called for little or no explanation.

When his listeners needed a lesson in diligence, knowing the mortal tendency to procrastination he said to his disciples, "The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest." No one who heard the Saviour needed to be told that delays are costly in harvest time. One of the oldest community practices is the rallying of neighbors to garner the ripened crops.
