“For the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which went out early in the morning to hire labourers into his vineyard. And when he had agreed with the labourers for a penny a day, he sent them into his vineyard. And he went out about the third hour, and saw others standing idle in the marketplace, And said unto them; Go ye also into the vineyard, and whatsoever is right I will give you. And they went their way. Again he went out about the sixth and ninth hour, and did likewise. And about the eleventh hour he went out, and found others standing idle, and saith unto them, Why stand ye here all the day idle? They say unto him, Because no man hath hired us. He saith unto them, Go ye also into the vineyard; and whatsoever is right, that shall ye receive.” (Matthew 20:1-7)
Today’s Morsel: I knew a man once who had just gotten out of prison and he told me that he needed to find a job so that he could provide for himself. He said that each morning he got up around 4 a.m, and headed to Labor Ready so that if anyone came by looking for someone to work, that he would be there. He was labor ready. When Adam and Eve sinned in the garden, man was then born for labor; it was a part of the curse inflicted on him for sin. Now he must work for his food and raiment or he doesn’t eat. Are you labor ready? The gospel needs to be preached to the whole world by the whole church. Jesus is still hiring and looking for laborers.
Sing: When He calls me, I will answer, when He calls me, I will hear. When He calls me, I will answer, I’ll be somewhere working for my Lord.
I’ll be somewhere working, I’ll be somewhere working, I’ll be somewhere working for my Lord; I’ll be somewhere working, I’ll be somewhere working, I’ll be somewhere working for my Lord.
Thought For Today: Are you Labor Ready?
