“…Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest...” Matthew 9:37-38 KJV (italics and emphasis mine)
The late Minister, ABC Mabondo, liked so much to talk about this particular God’s problem. Every time he would say, “God has a problem” people would go, aaaahhh!!!, incomprehensible isn't it? But true indeed the almighty God has a problem, He has plenty of harvest ready to be harvested into the store-house but very few labourers (vibarua) who are either ready or out there in the field working. We all know what happens when a ready harvest stays too long in the field.
God has no problem of overseers, managers and supervisors; we have plenty of those in the field, but very few labourers. Labourers (manual workers-not necessarily unskilled) are those who are willing and humble enough to roll back their sleeves and go to work. Without labourers, supervisors’/overseers’ role is redundant…Jesus then says the solution is PRAY that God will send…He didn’t say Go or start recruiting yourself but PRAY that God will send LABOURERS into HIS harvest.
