There is no such thing as bad weather - Boaz Ko

It is spring in New Zealand, where I live. Yesterday morning, Friday(03/11/2023), I left the church for my personal praying time with my wife. It was a rainy day with a light spring rain. As my wife and I were walking back to the car, I looked around and saw that without one or two people all were walking in the rain. This reminded me of an article below I read a while ago.

The British love of walking is unique ~ The entire country is covered in public trails, designated by the government, and very well mapped. Even if you're on private property, if it's designated as a public trail, you're required to open it up for public use and provide gates to allow access. A system called the 'Right of Way' has been practiced in England for hundreds of years. A gate at the entrance to a footpath, designed to allow people in and out and keep livestock out, is called a 'kissing gate'. It means 'a peck on the lips' and you open it with excitement and begin your walk. As we know, the weather in England is wet and rainy. The paths are always damp. But the Brits don't seem to mind. "There is no bad weather. It's just the wrong clothes." As the poet William Wordsworth said, you just need to pack your clothes and put on your boots

In New Zealand, winter is the rainy season, which lasts for four to five months. It's understandable if you feel depressed. We don't get snow and freezing rain like I did when I lived in Korea a long time ago, but the coldness of above zero degrees celsius weather is just as bad. After a while, when spring came and we saw the warmth and cold of the spring rain, we just got in the car and drove home in the rain.

And for the rest of the day, I meditated. The ideal of being born on the earth is that all human beings must walk the path of life. Some call it the path of life. I think the path is as varied as the number of people. Along the way, we cann’t stop to walk on the path of life because of rains or snows. As the poet William Wordsworth said, "There is no such thing as bad weather". If it rains, you can wear a raincoat and boots, and if it snows, you can wear warm clothes and furry boots.

I think there is no such thing as a failed life or a bad life. In other words, there is no bad life path. We just don't have the right clothes, gloves, or boots for that path. Today, instead of excusing the path you've been given, ask the Lord to give you the wisdom to examine the path you're walking. "If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you." (James 1:5)
