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 son, Matthew, spoke up from his relaxed position in his seat. “Mom, I’m thinking of something.”
This announcement usually meant he had been pondering some fact for a while, and was now ready to expound all that his six-year-old mind had discovered. I was eager to hear.
“What are you thinking?” I asked.
“The rain !” he 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, Matthew.”
Then my curiosity broke in. How far would little boy take this revelation? So I asked…”Do you notice how the rain keeps on coming? What does that tell you ?”
Matthew didn’t hesitate one moment with his answer: “We keep on sinning, and God just keeps on forgiving us.” I will always remember this whenever I turn my wipers on.
In order to see the rainbow, you must first endure some rain.
We must continually come to the Lord and seek His forgiveness.
