Snow Day

As I sit here pondering the aftermath of yesterday’s Snowpocalypse, I thought I would see exactly what the Bible has to say about all that fluffy white stuff.

Based on exhaustive analysis of every single mention of the word “snow” in the Bible, here are my TOP FIVE VERSES TO CONTEMPLATE WHILE YOU’RE STUCK INSIDE SNOWBOUND WONDERING WHY ON EARTH YOU EVER DECIDED TO LIVE IN WISCONSIN (or any other similar locale where Winter seems to last at least eleven-and-a-half months):

#5. God’s voice thunders in marvelous ways; he does great things beyond our understanding. He says to the snow, “Fall on the earth,” and to the rain shower, “Be a mighty downpour.” (Job 37:5-6)

#4. He spreads the snow like wool and scatters the frost like ashes. He hurls down hail like pebbles. Who can withstand his icy blast? He sends his word and melts them; he stirs up his breezes, and the waters flow. (Psalm 147:16-18)

#3. Wash me, and I will be whiter than the snow. (Psalm 51:7)

#2. Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow. (Isaiah 1:18)

#1. As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: it will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. (Isaiah 55:10-11)
