More and more water flows with increasing strength and power until the dam collapses and water floods through it. This is grace, a free gift from God.

Streams flow into rivers. As a stream grows stronger obstacles are swept away by its current. Rivers are even more powerful and not much can stop them from flowing. They flow …
