DAILY READINGS: 2 Chronicles 26:1-23; Ezekiel 43:1-27; John 19:17-42

And the weakness of God is stronger than men. 1 Corinthians 1:25

No doubt a snowflake is one of the weaker things God has made. Touch it and it disintegrates. Breathe on it and it evaporates. Yet snowflakes have often proven to be stronger than men. They can stop cars and trucks, close roads, schools and businesses and even stop men’s armies. Snow played a significant part in the destruction of Napoleon’s Grande Armee, and even Hitler’s formidable panzer divisions had to come to a standstill when confronted with God’s frail snowflakes. —P. W.

Unresting, unhasting and silent as light,
Nor wanting, nor wasting, Thou rulest in might.
Thy justice like mountains high soaring above;
Thy clouds which are fountains of goodness and love. —Walter C. Smith
