Sin is Like Snow

Sin is Like Snow

My favorite time to run is when its snowing. This may seem crazy to some, but when it snows I feel a closeness to God that I cannot describe. His presence seems to envelope my soul as I run through the tiny tender mercies that shower the ground.

Whenever I run, no matter the season I find running to be a source of consistent revelation. Running is a physical workout, but for me its more so a spiritual workout. As I run I am taught life lessons (I feel) that I could not have learned in any other way. President Deiter F. Uchtdorf learns life’s lessons by flying, I learn them by running.

If you ever see me running and typing something on my phone, I am not texting, I am writing down little lessons God teaches me as I jog. One such lesson is the reason for this post…

While running after a snow storm some time ago, I learned that sin is like snow! This may seem crazy to some, but let me explain.

The deeper the snow the more traction I have when running, and the more stable I become. On the flip side, when the snow is shallow and slick I have a much higher chance of falling.

So it is with sin.
