Here’s a shot taken on our outward bound trip to Henfield. I’m no farmer, so I was quite surprised that the harvest had started in July.

The scene reminded me of a passage I’d read in John 4 earlier in the week.

Just then His disciples arrivedand they were amazed that He was talking with a womanYet no one said, “What do You want? ” or “Why are You talking with her? ”

Then the woman left her water jarwent into townand told the men, “Comesee a man who told me everything I ever didCould this be the Messiah? ”They left the town and made their way to Him.

In the meantime the disciples kept urging Him, “Rabbi, eat something.”

But He said“I have food to eat that you don’t know about.”

The disciples said to one another, “Could someone have brought Him something to eat? ”

“My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to finish His work,” Jesus told them“Don’t yousay‘There are still four more monthsthen comes the harvest’?

Listen to what I’m telling youOpen  your eyes and look at the fieldsfor they are readyas for harvestThe reaper is already receiving pay andgathering fruit for eternal life,

at so the sower and reaper can rejoice together.

For in this case the saying istrue‘One sows and another reaps.’

I sent you to reap what you didn’t labour for; others have labouredand you have benefited from their labour.”

John 4: 27-38
