Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works (Titus 2:14).
Once, the hoar frost covered the trees. I shivered as my eyes beheld this beautiful sight.
As Christians sometimes we get caught up in the sights and sounds of this world. We dash busily to and fro from one task to another, forgetting all along about lost souls headed for a Christless eternity.
Hoar frost covers our hearts as we attend to the affairs of this life. Necessity demands that we cash our checks, buy groceries, and other like matters. Let us never forget the banker, the cashier, and others need Christ.
Has my heart become icy cold? What have I done today for eternity?
One day my Redeemer will return. Will He find me careful about His business or caught up in the business of this world?
Oh Lord, guard my heart from the hoar frost. Let me not become cold and forget about souls. In Jesus' name. Amen.

God opens opportunity each time we go to the grocery, to work, a casual meeting with a stranger and so many other times. We need to listen closely to his voice and follow it...we do not know who he will place in our path. We have to be ready and willing. Great lesson for all of us, Lynn. GOD BLESS YOU.
