Showered by Love

All are one in God.

Jeremiah 14:22

Among the nations’ idols is there any that gives rain? O can the mere heavens send showers? Is it not you alone, O Lord, our God, to whom we look? You alone have done all these things.

God causes the rain to fall on all people…the just and the unjust alike.

Some say, “Unfair!” Our egos don’t like this unconditional love of God!

Have you heard that “ego” stands for “Edge-God-Out”?

God is generous beyond our understanding…even to those we dislike

Jesus told us that we must love our enemies. This is a hard saying when we are operating from a mind that is constantly dividing people into who are “in” and who are “out.”

What we need is a transformed mind.

In the words of St. Paul: “Do not conform yourself to this age but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and pleasing and perfect” (Romans 12:2).

This is not by our own doing…but totally by the grace of God.

Our minds need to be changed by the unconditional love of God…who sends the rains on all people as one body of Christ.

And may we all respond as one, “Amen!”
