Sunlight and rain help souls grow too

Love your enemies, pray for those who persecute you. In that way, you will be acting as true children of your Father in heaven. For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and he sends rain on the just and the unjust alike. Matt. 5:43-44

Jesus used the sunlight and rain as illustrations of how we are to love one another. Sunlight and rain are indiscriminate and don’t just fall on the worthy or favored. We aren’t endorsing or minimizing sin when we love others. The love we extend is  like sunlight and rain on souls that need nourishment.

Lord, pour out your sunlight and rain on all of us.
