Planting and Harvesting

October 8th, 2018

“Planting and Harvesting”

And Jesus went throughout all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every affliction. 36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. 37 Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; 38 therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.”

- Matthew 9:35-38 (ESV)

I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth.

– 1 Cor. 3:6 (ESV)

  • We plant:
    • Pray for help
    • Perceive the need
    • Promote compassion


  • God provides:
    • People who partner & populate
    • “Produce” – The fruit of His harvest
