When the earth is watered by rain, snow or some other form of precipitation, people in my neck of the woods generally rejoice. We always seem to need a few inches more. So, it is not uncommon to hear the religious among us pray for rain when we need it and express thanks when we get it. In a few days, we’ll be asking for more.
The Creator does not show partiality (Acts 10:34). He created precipitation which, like sunshine, shows no favorites. It falls on the evil and the good, the righteous and the unrighteous alike (Matthew 5:45). The similarity ends there. Believers have chosen to participate in precipitation. We will continue to pray for rain and give thanks when it falls…even when it falls on our enemies and those who persecute us. Come to think of it, we could really use some right now.
