Jesus was a very busy man. He would have been hired as an efficiency expert today. But no matter how much he taught, walked from town to town, cured and fed the multitudes, he felt he needed help. He laments that “the laborers are few.” He then sends out his disciples with his own authority and asks us to pray for more disciples. We can be a disciple and in our own way cure the sick, raise the dead, cleanse lepers.

Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. . . . You only need a heart full of grace.”   How will I serve today? How will I do my part?
