Snow

Snow covers everything and makes the world look fresh and new and clean. Some countries don’t ever see snow. There this verse is a stumbling block to its listeners.

Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow. (Psalm 51:7, NIV)

My missionary friend in Africa uses this wording instead.

Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than wool. (Psalm 51:7, NIV)

Both wool and snow start out white but both can be messed up by those who tread through it with their nasty muck-covered shoes or boots. The world displays its dirt and slime and mud; no more pure clean visuals.

Is it time to offer up your boots for cleansing so that when you walk through the holiness of Christ, you are not mucking up his reputation or yours?

Prayer: Lord, cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than wool. (From Psalm 51:7, NIV) Amen.
