Reap The Excess

The Bible says that it rains on the just and the unjust. But that doesn’t mean that you get rain whether you are just or unjust. Consider how God stopped the rain for three and a half years because of sin. Or consider the great flood. The whole world got wet, but Noah and his family stayed dry. But here’s the thing, if a just person prays for rain and God sends it, his unjust neighbors are going to get part of that rain. You won’t see a selective cloud that dumps rain on just one house.

I won’t got out of my way to stretch this thought more than I should, but if you want to be blessed, hang out with the people God blesses. When their cup runs over, you’ll get the overflow.
