How cold is it where you live this morning? Is there ice on the windshield, water leaking into the house or snow on the mountains nearby?

Snow fell around the Western Cape this past week. Isaiah puts our sinfulness and God’s grace into perspective: ‘Come, let’s consider your options,’ says the LORD. ‘Though your sins are like scarlet, I will make them as white as snow’ (http://bit.ly/1j5bDCx )

Take two moments: one to thank God for loving you and dealing with all that sinful stuff; and one to consider how to love others during this monster cold front?
