Mountain peaks are never crowded.
Why? Because it’s hard work getting there. Not very many people desire to climb mountains.
There is more light on the mountain. Long after the valley is in darkness, you can still see the sun.
The valley is always dark – full of people and things, but usually in darkness.
If you’re going to climb a mountain, you have to have the feeling that it’s worth dying for!
Only pioneers climb mountains – people who want to do something that few have ever done before, people who want to get above the multitude and go beyond what has already been accomplished.
On the mountain you feel like you’re living in eternity.
Man dominates the valley.
BEATEN PATHS ARE FOR BEATEN MEN,
BUT MOUNTAIN PEAKS ARE FOR THE MIGHTY PIONEERS!
WHAT DO YOU HEAR ON THE MOUNTAIN?
After Jesus’ disciples heard His “Sermon on the Mount”, they came down and changed the world. They were never the same.
They heard the voice of God teaching them things that were completely contrary to what was being said in the valley! Jesus is inviting you to climb the mountain with Him.
