If we confess our sins, He is faithful and
just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse
us from all unrighteousness.
( 1 John 1:9 *NKJV )
“Out of the mouths of Babe’s” category, hear a 6 year old child as she teaches us a valuable lesson.
I hope you will enjoy this, and pause a moment to think about
it as well.
Subject: A wonderful meaning of Rain
Rain: One rainy afternoon I was driving along one of the main
streets of town, taking those extra precautions necessary when
the roads are wet and slick.
Suddenly, my daughter, Aspen, spoke up from her relaxed
position in her seat. “Dad, I’m thinking of something.” This
announcement usually meant she had been pondering some
fact for a while, and was now ready to expound all that her
six-year-old mind had discovered. I was eager to hear.
“What are you thinking?” I asked.
“The rain! ;” she began, “is like sin, and the windshield wipers
are like God wiping our sins away.
After the chill bumps raced up my arms I was able to respond.
“That’s really good, Aspen.” Then my curiosity broke in. How far
would this little girl take this revelation? So I asked… “Do you
notice how the rain keeps on coming?
What does that tell you?”
Aspen didn’t hesitate one moment with her answer: “We keep
on sinning, and God just keeps on forgiving us.”
I will always remember this whenever I turn my wipers on.
After all, In order to see the rainbow, you must first endure
some rain. Amen.
