Air-conditioned houses can cause us to not be as acquiescent to the will of God – to some degree. We, as sinners, have a tendency to buck up against weather and comfort moves us away from being molded by “normal” events. That is to say, rather than learn perseverance and patience from the heat of summer or the cold of winter we can run from our cool car to our cool house and curse the sun, the humidity, and the “unbearable” heat.

Maybe if we got rid of such comforts, we would learn how to be content in all circumstances and not be so quick to rest on the laurels of ease.
