verse 12: “The king’s wrath is like the roaring of a lion, But his favor is like dew on the grass.”

Question: with what does a firefighter water his lawn with? Answer: a garden hose. (Okay, how many of you wanted to say a fire hose? 🙂 )

From the same hose pipe (for the uninformed, that’s another way of saying “garden hose”) you can propel water out in a violent, roaring stream, or in a gentle, refreshing cascade. Same source, two different deliveries. That’s like the king mentioned in the verse above. His wrath, being the ruling monarch, is a fearsome thing to behold, especially if you’re the target. However, if you are in trouble, his aid can be refreshment, like the dew nourishing the grass.

Something to think about.
