 Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”

Matthew 9:37-38

“There is so much to do! What can I do? I am just one person!” How many times have you ever had that thought?

As you read this scripture in Matthew, remember that we are the workers. Each of us has value and can help in some way. Listen to what God is calling you to do.  It might be sharing food with the poor, sending someone an encouraging note, praying for someone in need, or texting or calling a friend to encourage them in their trials.

Well, my brothers and sisters, it doesn’t matter how fat your bank account is, how many influential friends you may have, in what neighborhood you may reside, or how old or how young you may be, there is something you can do! Trinity provides us with many opportunities to help our neighbors who are in need.

If you look at this picture, you will see bins used to collect food for those in need in front of the Welcome Center. During the pandemic, it may be difficult to bring food to Trinity.  Never fear my friends! You can give online at the Trinity UMC website or send a check to the church designated to the Food Pantry.

During this Advent season, it is important for us to be obedient and available to be a worker. Be prepared for God to use you to be a humble servant in His kingdom.
