Faces of the World
New International Version (NIV)
35 Don’t you have a saying, ‘It’s still four months until harvest’? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest.
King James Version (KJV)
37 Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few;
38 Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.
1 Corinthians 15:54
English Standard Version (ESV)
54 When the perishable puts on the imperishable, and the mortal puts on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written:
“Death is swallowed up in victory.”
It's an easy search on the internet to find images of children or pretty young women frolicking in a field of flowers or golden barley. It's probably why I so enjoy this picture of Bulgarian women in a lavender field. These are working women, not girls at play; and they are lovely. Such I should also be in my Lord's fields. One day when I put on my imperishable garments I will run and dance in my Father's fields. Until that day there's still much to be done.
