God's Grace as Water: It's Everywhere

Although it’s not obvious, water is everywhere we are, all the time. We ourselves are mostly water, all living plants contain a high percentage of water, and the very air we breathe always contains some water, even when humidity is at its lowest. Water is contained in many of the foods we depend on to stay healthy, from vegetables, to dairy products, to meats, and if its not there in the form in which we eat them, it was there in their earlier forms. We are dependent on water, whether we know it or not.

God’s grace is like that. It too is everywhere we are, whether we recognize it or not. It's what keeps us alive and makes life worth living. It’s provided to all, in one form or another, whether or not they appreciate its presence, nature, or source, and none of us can live without it.

Images about humility were posted October 1, November 6 and 10, 2004.
Images about God providing things we need, but can’t provide for ourselves, were posted September 12a, 17a, and 18c, October 3a, 3b November 6, 10, 21 and 27, 2004 and January 2, 10b, and 10c, June 13 and 27, 2005.)
