As I write the post, it’s raining outside. Here in Colorado it’s been really, really dry. Wildfires have burned throughout the state this spring and my yard is crunchy. The rain is much needed and much desired. Isn’t it funny how we can be so appreciative of a simple thing like rain? We all know that although simple, rain gives life and that is amazing.
A needed rain coming just in time always reminds me of Matthew 5:45 where we’re told that the Lord sends rain on the just and the unjust alike. That’s called common grace – the Lord’s goodness that comes to all, despite our righteousness or lack thereof.
As for me today, I’m not sure if I’m just or unjust, I’m just glad it’s raining.
