When I think about the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering®, I think about Matthew 9:36–38.
When he saw the crowds, he felt deep concern for them. They were treated badly and were helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then Jesus said to his disciples, “The harvest is huge. But there are only a few workers. So ask the Lord of the harvest to send workers out into his harvest field” (Matthew 9:36–38 NIrV).
