Time to Harvest?

My home is in the countryside surrounded by fields. Yesterday, the local farmer had obviously thought it was time to harvest her crops and sow seed for next year. She had also read the weather forecast for rain and, as a result, she and her hands worked through the night. Even at dawn, their tractors could be heard toiling away.

Christ talked a lot about harvesting crops. While he didn’t refer to the weather much, he did tell us to read the times. Then and only then, could we know what he wants us to do.

These are difficult times to read but the headlines are obvious.  It is especially clear that our planet is reaching a crossroads environmentally. Maybe then, God’s word is to think carefully what we are doing so that future generations will have the privilege of harvesting any crop at all. landscape-982178_1920
