Ag In The Bible – Rain
The farmers and ranchers in Texas and, right now, California, can tell what happens when it’s only sun. No rain to nourish the fields means no grass, no crops, no life.
But whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” John 4:15
What the value of rain is depends on if you’re planting a crop or planning a picnic. Without rain, however, there’s no nourishment for the land. Without that, there’s no nourishment for us. Water is life, so when the Bible speaks of the water of life it’s with great importance.
When it rains, collect the water. Learn from it. Use it. It’s too valuable to waste, and often that value isn’t seen until there is none.
