No Conceit


People who are fond of mountain climbing would like to try the Himalayas. But conquering the Himalayas is not easy at all. Since the peaks are significantly high, they have strenuous treks that even fray professional mountain climbers’ nerves, and this causes constant accidents.

Ten percent of fatal accidents attribute to falls, and surprisingly, a fall occurs most right after people reach a mountain peak. This is why they say the Himalayas do not allow conceit.

When people reach the top after an arduous journey, they feel relieved and release their tension. They might feel proud of themselves. However, conceit at the peak of a mountain can bring about a terrible accident. Even at the top, never forget what and how to do next.

“So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall!” 1 Co 10:12

Though we’ve run through the path of faith well, it’s not over yet. We must always be awake until we take hold of salvation. No matter where we are and what we do, what is important comes from now on.
