“My food,” said Jesus, “is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work. Don’t you have a saying, ‘It’s still four months until harvest’? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest.
– John 4:34-35 (NIV)

The work of God is not seasonal, for He loves His people and is always doing something in the world around us. But are we able to see that? When our food is to do the will of God we will have hungry eyes searching beyond our needs and toward the creation that is groaning to be reconciled with its Creator. Open your eyes, for there is a harvest right in front of you!
