The Colors

Do you ever think spiritually about the colors you use when you knit?

Colors can remind us of so many things, and they can add an extra dimension to how we think as we stitch. We can allow the Holy Spirit to help us remember truths through them.

For example, a dark color can remind us of our sin. We all have that. Red can remind us of Christ's blood and the cleansing we get from it. We all need that. White can remind us that, in Jesus, we are purer than new snow. We all want that.

Some others:

Gold - Heaven
Green -- creation, new life
Yellow-- God's light
Blue --  faith
Purple -- Christ as King

These colors can aide our personal devotions as we work or even be a tool of evangelism, helping us to tell the gospel story.

25 “All this I have spoken while still with you. 26 But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. 27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14:25-27

What do colors remind you of?


  1. I think about colors and their energetic vibrations a lot :-)

  2. Pink has become a color of hope. White is definitely a strong color of purity for me. This post makes me want to finish that knitting project that is on a shelf in my closet.
