I hate the snow! Why can’t we live in Hawaii?

Posted on 3/20/2019 by Greg Yoder

If you live in areas where this time of year is uncomfortable for the cold-blooded, you’ve probably heard something similar from your kids. Here are some suggestions. First, tell them the cold is God’s creation, too. Point out that the snow is actually a picture of salvation. Before it snows, the ground is brown and ugly. But the covering of snow makes everything beautiful, just like Jesus’ blood does for us when He saves us. Then remind them of how good it feels on that first warm day of spring. It wouldn’t be so memorable if it wasn’t for the cold. And, it could always be worse. Yakutsk, Russia—average high temperature in January? -37 degrees. Brr!

Suggested Reading: 1 Thessalonians 5:18
