Mountaintops Are Places You Can’t Stay

worldview

Some days you may start out feeling like you’re on the top of the world.  Your worldview is clear. You can see the vision with clarity. You only see mountain tops. But, the reality is-from the top of mountain tops there are valleys at the bottom. The mountain top is far from the place you started. It’s also a place you can’t stay. Mountaintops are not meant to serve as a place of complacency and a place to settle for mediocrity. Make the best of where you start.

But, don’t give up, aim for the top ….

Just a Thought: The true sign of wisdom is what one does in his or her lowest state. He who strives to stay seated in high places are liken to a baby seated in a high chair until the age of maturity. One who is wise and mature is seated among others in humility  grace. The reason is because he or she knows serving others elevates status not pride and immaturity.

    Yes, I also recognize that not all of our days will be spent on the highs. We will all have to go through valley experiences, because those experiences are what helps to shape us to become more like Christ. Thanks for that perspective. Actually, I probably could never do any mountain climbing because I am terribly scared of height.

      Thanks Barbara for your input. I think the mountaintop is a milestone, but it is not a destination. Life is a journey. There are many mountaintop experiences as well as valley experiences. It is what we do at the bottom as well as the top. I agree, some of the greatest life lessons are from the valley experiences. I believe it is because this is where we are refined. I also agree, I do not care for heights either. I only tolerate airplanes out of necessity.

    I agree we must stay humble and remember where we started.
    It’s easy to forget how we got to the mountaintop.
    It wasn’t because of what we did but only by His grace.
    When we keep a humble heart we will be of service to others and help them get to the mountaintop God has for them.
