I was thinking this morning.... Last week my little niece in Scotland went to school and was told that her teacher called Miss White will be changing color next week. She couldn’t understand what they meant by 'she will be changing colour.' Out of curiosity she asked what that meant and was told that Miss White will be getting married next week and coincidentally her fiancé is called Mr Brown. So she will change from Miss White to Mrs Brown. 😀🤪

While it is true that chameleon changes colour to match its environment, humans can also change colours. How? Someone can turn blue from being cold or not breathing and also turn red when angry or embarrassed.

My niece's experience taught me a fresh lesson about how marriage can metaphorically change one's colour. Many get into marriage as Miss White (known for a particular good behaviour) but completely get influenced by the bad character of the spouse (Mr Brown) and she becomes Mrs Brown.

Some others (Miss White) get into marriage (with Mr Brown) and blend with the spouse. No one overwhelms the other. They both influenced each other and ended up being Mr & Mrs Beige (a mixture of white and brown), with both losing their original identity.

Yet a few 'Miss White' get into marriage with such strong character that Mr Brown drops his name to bear 'White'. Miss White remains who she was before marriage. There is no colour change, if any, it is Mr Brown that changes his colour.

Has marriage changed your colour? If marriage has changed your colour from white to brown or scarlet or even black, it's time to clean up. Isaiah 1:18 says 'though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow.' If you must change colour, change to white.

Stay hopeful. God's got your back.

Happy Sunday.
