I live in an area that is predominately agricultural.
Farmers, families, and friends depend on crops to keep money in circulation. We all talk about the weather. In times of summer drought, we talk more.
Christ Jesus compared the lost and dying to a harvest.
In our churches, pastors and congregations talk about the lost. In times of dwindling numbers and apostasy, we talk more.
“After these things the Lord appointed seventy others also, and sent them two by two before His face into every city and place where He Himself was about to go. Then He said to them, ‘The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest (Luke 10:1-2 NKJ).”
