I’m sure many of you have seen Frozen, or have some idea of the characters. You at least know the songs. Olaf is the comic relief, the loveable and goofy snowman that makes you laugh and gives you warm fuzzies.
There are three amazing lessons I think we can learn from this sweet Disney character:
1) Olaf wasn’t built for the world he lived in. He was a snowman that would much rather have been enjoying the sunny beaches somewhere. He just wanted warm hugs. You know what? We aren’t built for our world, either. We are built for heaven and an eternity with the One in whose image we are created.
2) Olaf was given his own personal flurry. Do you remember near the end of the movie, Olaf was begining to melt and Elsa quickly granted him his own personal snow flurry to protect him and keep him safe? We, too, have our own personal flurry that God gives us to keep us safe as we maneuver through the world for which we weren’t built. It’s called the Holy Spirit.
3) Olaf was positive and kind, and a little naive. He believed the best in everyone. He looked for the positive in things. He navigated through his day with a little silver lining lens. Even when he was impaled, or Sven tried to eat his nose, or he began to melt, or even when he lost his head, nothing could get him down in the world for which he wasn’t built.
Do you ever feel like you just don’t quite fit in? Like you don’t belong? Like you weren’t made for this world? Good, because you weren’t. There is something far greater in store for you, so stay under your personal flurry and look for the best in everything. Your happy ending is coming soon.
