|Raindrops Like Sin
|Raindrops Like Sin - Out of the mouth of a babe.
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 Ben spoke up from his relaxed
position in the front 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 seven-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, Ben." Then my curiosity broke in. How far would this
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. Isn't it
comforting to know that God does keep forgiving us?
