When you see a rainbow, what does it mean to you? Is it just a happy splash of color after it rains? Maybe you think of gay pride, as many people do nowadays.
But do you think of God’s promise he made to the world?
That’s right, the rainbow is a symbol of God’s grace, his promise to never flood the earth again.
Genesis 9:12-13 says ‘ And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and every living creature with you, a covenant for all generations to come. I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth.” ‘
It’s super clear the rainbow is a symbol of grace and God’s love.
Not. Gay. Pride.
Sure, I get that the gay pride movement “needs a symbol”. But don’t steal something that used to be holy and turn into a symbol for blatant sin!
Sure, it’s a symbol, it doesn’t define our faith. No symbol does. But God was very clear when he said that the rainbow is a covenant between him and the earth. And any covenant with God is holy.
What other symbols have been horrifically misused by the public? Comment away 🙂
