When the Harvest is Ready


Spent 1-1/2 hours in our garden this afternoon, pulling green beans in the rain! When the harvest is ready, you have to put aside personal comfort and agendas and just go for it, because if you put it off and there’s no one else to do the reaping, the harvest will rot on the vine! (“The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved.” Jeremiah 8:20)

And while I’m not looking forward to the next 3-4 hours of work: washing and snapping the beans, and the heat of the whole canning process (“So, being affectionately desirous of you, we were ready to share with you not only the gospel of God but also our own selves.” 1 Thessalonians 2:8), the end result will be a wonderful blessing for me . . . and for many others who weren’t even involved in the work! (“I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you, because your faith is proclaimed in all the world.” Romans 1:8)
