“Come let us reason together, though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be as crimson, they shall be like wool.” Isaiah 1:18
So many have been saddened this week at the passing of Tony Snow, political commentator, White House Press secretary, radio host, and television news anchor. He was so couragous through out his battle with cancer. I loved his humor, feistiness, and dedication. He was so positive in all situations, even when it was not vogue to be positive about a declining life.
This may seem a little weird, but being a “word” person, I loved Tony’s last name, “Snow.” And I always thought of the above Scripture when I heard his name. Tony knew something about the reality of sin, the power of forgiveness, and the need to make things right with God and man. That was the foundation and source of his courage in life.
How we will miss him, and how we pray for his family to be comforted in the days ahead as they deal with this great loss. And how we rejoice at his homegoing that Tony made that choice one day to turn his sin from scarlet to snow.
Hereis a great tribute about Tony Snow by William Kristol.
