Does the rain have a father? Who gives birth to the dew? Who is the mother of the ice? Who gives birth to the frost from the heavens? – Job 38:28-29
There are potentially three ways to react to the poetic words posed by the creator:
- We could remain in fear of what appears to be the unfair randomness of the universe.
- We could resign ourselves to the sovereign power of a God and be overwhelmed by the awesome depth of the creator.
- We can see the surrender of control of almost everything outside of ourselves as an opportunity for humility and knowing our spiritual place in the scheme of creation.
I believe that at different times and at different places each and every one of these reactions is appropriate.
Today’s Action: Sit and drink a hot cup of tea.
