Hold your ground, even when the heat is on

Things I learned from a snowman:

~ It's okay if you're a little bottom heavy.

~ Hold your ground, even when the heat is on.

~ Wearing white is always appropriate.

~ Winter is the best of the four seasons.

~ It takes a few extra rolls to make a good midsection.

~ There's nothing better than a foul weather friend.

~ The key to life is to be a jolly, happy soul.

~ We're all made up of mostly water.

~ You know you've made it when they write a song about you.

~ Accessorize! Accessorize! Accessorize!

~ Don't get too much sun.

~ It's embarrassing when you can't look down and see your feet.

~ It's fun to hang out in your front yard.

~ Always put your best foot forward.

~ There's no stopping you once you're on a roll.

There's actually a few good pieces of advice in there, from a biblical
standpoint. I especially like the second item on the list: "Hold your
ground, even when the heat is on."

That could be used as a summary statement for Peter's first epistle, which
was written to Christians who were suffering persecution as a result of
their faith. Here is some of what Peter wrote to encourage them:

"Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him
glorify God in this matter....Therefore let those who suffer according to
the will of God commit their souls to Him in doing good, as to a faithful
Creator." (I Peter 4:16,19).

I urge you today to commit yourself to doing good no matter what the
opposition may be. And next time you see a snowman, be reminded of this
truth: "Hold your ground, even when the heat is on."
