A snowboarding parable

Being out on the slopes, I’ve been thinking a lot about parables. You know, those little stories that teach you about God and His kingdom? Well, they’re everywhere! So let’s keep our eye out for them.

First, there’s the parable of the helmet, or rather, the God-given helmet of salvation! Nice and secure, and frankly, it’s the helmet of salvation that makes me feel comfortable and safe out here.

Just like a snowboard is built for the snow, prayer is built for life. And just like I strap myself into my board, you can strap yourself into prayer and feel centered on God and what He’s created.
