Mountain-top Experience

Galatians 6:3. “For, if a man think himself to be something, whe he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.”

This is certainly not a picture of bearing one another’s burdens!  I like the message of yesterday’s graphic a whole lot better.  People who tend to hold themselves in high esteem are rarely going to come down off their mountaintops to lend a hand to anyone else. So impressed with their own importance they are that they don’t realize an important truth: It does no good to have a mountain-top experience if you don’t go back down to the valley to feed the people.

No one can survive very long at the peak of a very high mountain. No water. Thin oxygen. Poor growing conditions. And it’s cold.  We have those experiences, spiritually, and it can be exhilarating. But it’s useless if we can’t get over ourselves and minister to others.

Some wise soul has said that he he blows his own horn generally plays a solo.
