You don’t climb mountains to get to the top; you climb them to see what other mountains there are to climb. (TV commercial)
Why do people climb mountains? “Because they are there,” they say. For the strong and healthy the challenge is just too great to pass up. The view from the top may not have been the motivation, but it certainly can be the reward. For most of us, there are plenty of mountains we face every day. They are challenges we must accept if we are to learn, grow, and succeed.
Fear God and obey his commands, for this is everyone’s duty. God will judge us for everything we do (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14).
