Why are the workers so few at church?

When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then 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.” Matthew 9:36-38

            Jesus saw the crowds and had compassion on the people because they were hurting, harassed, helpless, in need of guidance.  That’s why he said, we need workers.  Maybe people forget that others are hurting, lost, dying, without hope.  Once we see that need, people will hopefully jump in and help.
