Be Safe!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

George Vandeman wrote about a young man who was making his first climb in the Alps, accompanied by two experienced guides. It was a steep, hazardous ascent, but the young man felt secure with one guide ahead of him and the other following closely behind. They climbed for hours before finally reaching the summit.

The lead guide moved aside to allow his client to experience the spectacular view. Forgetting what he had been taught about the dangerous winds that could sweep him to his death, the young man stood up tall. But the chief guide pulled him back down. “On your knees, sir!” he shouted. “You are never safe here except on your knees.”

We live in a dangerous world. The safest position to assume is on our knees.

“Pray continually.”—1 Thessalonians 5:17.
