In the world of interior design the whites available to designers and avid home decorators are seemingly endless at times. There are off whites, cool whites, warm whites, and bright whites. Navajo White, Linen White, Cloud White, Milk White, Atrium White and Polo Mallet White are a few of the contemporary whites available.
Thoughts of an apartment I visited in Paris, France several years ago come to mind. The kitchen was painted in gleaming white. I marveled at the modern white kitchen appliances, white walls, the white floor, the white table and chairs, and the slashes of bright yellow that were so expertly placed. It was breathtaking. It felt so clean, and airy, and bright. The sun shining in made it seem all the more so.
An interior designer told me recently that she is planning on changing her bathroom decor. Everything will be white including the mosaic tiled floor. No doubt it will be stunning.
There is another white. Snow White. Isaiah 1:18 states, “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord, though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow, though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.” Even though I am born again, a new creation in Christ, transferred from the kingdom of darkness to the kingdom of his own dear Son, there are times that I sin. When I repent and ask for forgiveness, my sin becomes as white as snow.
He is designing my interior. As I trust and obey, the fruits of His Spirit grow in me, day by day. More love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Galatians 5:22.
