“He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed . . . . He bestows rain upon the earth . . . . The lowly he sets on high and those who mourn are lifted to safety” (Job 5:9-11).
The ancient wise man was breathless with wonder at the generous rain which fell on the earth, slaking human thirst and causing food to grow. With the same rapture and awe he could speak of God’s tendency to practice values completely opposite to human ones. ‘He promotes the lowly.’ God honours what we despise. Next time it rains, think of these two wonders.
