Have you ever thought about snowflakes?

We’re in the midst of our first major snowstorm of the season here in the Midwest. As I watched the flurry of snowflakes fall, the Lord brought to mind some thoughts about snow I’d never considered before.



We’ve all heard that there are no two snowflakes alike. Each one is as intricately detailed and unique as each of us. A snowflake can melt away in an instant, much like our lives–fleeting and seemingly insignificant. Except in God’s eyes. He counts each of us worthy through the blood of Christ and knows each of us by name.


A single snowflake, or even a small flurry of snow doesn’t gain much attention. But when they shower down in droves, bleach the earth white, and pack the roads, they cause all sorts of cancellations and change in plans. In the same way, we Christians may not cause a lot of stir through our individual witness. But when we band together as one, we can shine light into a darkened world and make a huge impact if we commit our ways to the Lord.


When snow falls gently and glistens on the ground and trees, it’s like an image of God’s mercy–peaceful and full of beauty. But when the snow comes fast and furious as in a winter storm, it is a reminder of God’s judgement on the earth. God’s nature is a perfect balance of compassion and justice. His compassion is evidenced in His sending Jesus, His one and only Son to die in our place. But his justice is reserved for those who spurn the gracious gift of redemption.

All this from watching the snow fall out my bedroom. I don’t think I’ll every view snow again without remembering these lessons the Lord brought to mind.
