Windscreen wipers

One very rainy morning a mother was driving into the city, taking extra precautions because the roads were wet and slippery. Suddenly, her son spoke up from the back of the car. “Mom, I’m thinking of something.”

“What are you thinking?” she asked, eyes fixed firmly on the wet tarmac ahead.

“The rain!” he began, “it’s like sin, and the windscreen wipers are like God wiping our sins away.”

Then she asked, “Do you notice how the rain keeps on coming? What does that tell you?”

The boy didn’t hesitate one moment with his answer, “We keep on sinning, and God just keeps on forgiving us.” 

We aren’t one of these new-fangled cars that automatically knows when it’s raining and wipes the screen for you, no. We need to ask God’s forgiveness to make the wipers work.

Sometimes the wiper blades don't clear away the rain but we can still see the road ahead and put our trust in being safe.
