Almost lunch time and Ha and her daughter will stop to eat as they continue selling lottery tickets to all who pass by along the side street. Her daughter will smile and catch eyes, hopefully receiving a little extra money to help in the earnings. For most people who will buy a ticket, it is not about a winning ticket, but it’s about giving money to the poor.
Jesus stood up in the temple and unrolled a scroll of the prophet Isaiah and read, “The Spirit of the Lord is on Me, because He has anointed Me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.” Luke 4:17-19
Ask the Lord of the harvest to send laborers to help proclaim His Good News.
