c. Teach the Lesson (15 minutes)
Lesson #11 Visual Aids
[Dress up in work clothes; gloves, hat, shirt,
and boots.] In our Bible reading today, Jesus sent out people
to bring in the harvest. Do any of you know what a harvest is? Harvest
is the time when plants, fruits, vegetables and grains are ready
to be picked and brought in, when your Moringa tree gets around
7 feet you can harvest it and cut it down to just around 1 foot
off the ground. Remember we learnt about pruning, the more your
pinch back the branches, the bushier and better they become.
The harvest Jesus was talking about here in the
Bible was not Moringa, Mangos or Bananas. (Hold up objects)
He was sending out workers to bring people into the Kingdom
of God. He said that there were many souls who were ready to be
harvested, but there were not enough workers. One reason it was
hard to find workers was that it was very difficult work. Jesus
warned that the workers in His Kingdom would often be treated very
Jesus said that there are many people out there
who need to be helped, who need to be cared for, who need to be
taught about God’s love.
We don’t need these things (gardening
props) to care for the harvest Jesus talks about, but sometimes
we do need to get our hands dirty to really serve and care for others.
Jesus is still looking for people who will work
for him and bring people into his kingdom. That is what the church
is supposed to do. It won't always be easy. In fact, it will be
A farmer usually doesn’t buy a field with
a ready grown harvest.
Our Moringa harvest began when we planted the Moringa
seed in the water bottles many months ago. But our work didn’t
stop there. NO.
We had to:
• Water it.
• Cultivate it.
• Weed it.
• Plant it.
• Guard it against bugs, goats etc
• We had to give it a lot of attention to make it produce
so we can go out & gather in the harvest!
How do I nurture the Jesus seed that has
been planted in my heart?
• By cultivating your relationship with Jesus Christ.
• By praying
• By reading and memorizing His Word the Bible
• By worshipping Him
• By fellowshipping with other believers
In between the seed-planting & the harvesting
a divine process had been going on.
GOD HAD BEEN GROWING THE SEED!
The important thing to notice about farmers is that
they have to be willing to wait for the seed to come into full growth!
That is how you make it through
the growing season, REFUSE TO GIVE UP UNTIL YOU RECEIVE
They had to have faith in what they had planted
& believe it would produce the harvest.

6. APPLICATION / ENCOUNTERING GOD
Let the children come and quietly ask God how He can use them to
be labourers to reap the harvest in their schools, homes and playground.
Lord of the Harvest, we know that Your harvest field is ripe for
the picking. We long to see Your Kingdom come on this earth and
to do everything we can to obey Your commission to go into all the
world. We know that the workers are few so we ask you Lord to release
workers to go into the Mission field. We thank you God that you
created fruit trees for our health and healing You created light
to enable trees to grow. You created us in your image to reflect
Your love and glory. You are awesome and we worship you. Amen.
