Give your Respose

Whiter Than This? Yeah!

December 20, 2009

Let me be clear. I love watching the snow fall, but shoveling it? Not so much.

This is my son's first snowfall and he had a ball--for about 3 minutes. The wind and driving snow kinda overwhelmed him. Can you blame him? He's only 13 months.

God willing, there will be many more snowfalls in his future. He'll get to go sledding. He'll make snow-angels--and hopefully shovel a bunch of it with his Dad. When he's old enough, I'll teach that he's as unique as a snowflake, since no two of them are the same, and there's no other human being quite like him.

When I'm done sharing all that with him, though, I'll teach him the most important thing about snow. It's a truth God wants every human being to know. He told the prophet Isaiah to write it down.

Here's what it says: "Come now, let us reason together,' says the Lord. 'Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool" (Isaiah 1:18, NIV).

I want my boy to know that when his life gets dirty--and like snow, it will--God can clean it up and make it even whiter than freshly fallen snow. He can do the same for you, no matter what you've done.

Don't ever believe the lie that God cannot make you clean again. He can and He will!
