I really try hard to dislike snow, but when it is coming down and looking so beautiful out there it is difficult to dislike it. The current flakes are the big ones, and coming down like a snow globe at the moment. I love that my desk is by my window so I can work and watch it coming down.
I decided to see what the Bible had to say about snow…and don’t you know the first thing I find speaks to my heart and are passages I am very familiar with:
Isaiah 1:17-19 (New King James Version)
17 Learn to do good;
Rebuke the oppressor;[a]
Defend the fatherless,
Plead for the widow.
18 “ Come now, and let us reason together,”
Says the LORD,
“ Though your sins are like scarlet,
They shall be as white as snow;
Though they are red like crimson,
They shall be as wool.
19 If you are willing and obedient,
You shall eat the good of the land;
Psalm 51:6-8 (New King James Version)
6 Behold, You desire truth in the inward parts,
And in the hidden part You will make me to know wisdom.
7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean;
Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
8 Make me hear joy and gladness,
That the bones You have broken may rejoice.
Okay, a good way to look at the snow, as a reminder that when washed in the blood of Christ, we are pure, whiter than snow, before the Father. Okay okay so snow CAN be a good thing. 🙂
