What does grass till grace mean

His grace is like the dew on the grass.

In our monthly verse from the Old Testament we encounter a remarkable comparison. Comparisons are used for better clarity: A "factual situation" that is not directly visible. In our case, God's grace, an image that is understandable for everyone, here the dew on the plants, is contrasted and thus explained. Dew mainly forms in the warm season. When the air cools noticeably towards morning - especially after a clear, windless night - it releases its moisture and wets the soil, plants and leaves with countless water droplets. The first rays of the sun break into the most wonderful colors and "transform" them into brightly lit, sparkling pearls. Under the given circumstances, this mysterious, silent natural event can happen every morning and revive meadows and fields in a refreshing splendor of water pearls. And just as invigorating and refreshing is God's grace. However, there are still decisive points to consider here. In our monthly verse, a word is used for "grace" in the Hebrew original language of the Old Testament, which denotes someone who takes pleasure in a person and gives them rich gifts in return because that person did something pleasing to him. But how can a person please God? What does he have to do for it7 Does he have to give all his money to the poor, fast incessantly, be a good person? The Bible gives a clear answer: "Without faith it is impossible to please him." (Hebrews 11: 6) Faith is the basis of divine pleasure, not good works - these are "only" a consequence. Faith means trust, loyalty and obedience. If we trust God like a child and admit to him all our guilt, if we do that greatest gift, his son Jesus Christ, gratefully and when we are finally ready to follow him faithfully and obediently, then he will take pleasure in us and then every morning he can bead our hearts, indeed our entire lives, with the dew of his Refresh and revitalize gracious love.
