The Color of Sin

I asked the preschool kids in chapel this morning, "If you had to pick a color to represent sin, what color would it be?" One child in the first pew quickly replied, "Dark." Actually, that's quite Scriptural as we hear the chain of events that Friday when the sins of the world came to rest upon one man suspended between heaven and earth. (Matthew 27:45; Luke 23:44; John 1:5, 19; 8:12; 12:35, 46) May God in Christ Jesus bless your Ash Wednesday observance.
