Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogue, preaching the good ness of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. The he said to his disciples, ‘The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.’

How can a person be a guiding light to others when they have not even attempted to light their own lamp?
