"Windshield wiper lesson from a child"

Hmmm... Lately I am so into stories.. Will be posting more and more story in my blog... Unattended blog... Hopefully there will be people reading all this short stories.. Do spent time reading.. It is just a short story.. God bless...


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 Matthew 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, Matthew."

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? That all we have to do is trust Jesus as our savior and He will keep washing our sins away.

Yes, it is true that God always forgive us when we sin, but never ever take that for granted! Fight your own desires and have a breakthrough in life!
