The Daily Mountain

Though I have no experience Discount this message not For the moral is important And need not be forgot Of climbing I am speaking For in the literal I have not done But observation has given me A lesson for the course I run The higher upon a mountain you climb The less balance you possess It is harder to keep from stumbling And you have no ground for rest The higher upon a mountain you climb The less air there is to breathe The very basic necessity of life From you begins to take leave The higher upon a mountain you climb The farther you have to fall Be careful lest you climb too high And the fall be your last of all The higher upon a mountain you climb The more alone you are

The Parable of the Fathers’ Last Words

There were three men lying in a hospital, all terminally ill. The first man was a very wealthy and successful businessman. His family was full of bickering and infighting, and not wanting that to ruin his industry, he had called his family together in those last minutes. His final words before passing were, “I love you.

A Tale of Two Churches

Once upon a time there were two churches located within a big city. Both churches had been established for decades, were sound in faith and size, and had elders in leadership.

The bigger church had a preacher who had been there for decades and served as an elder. The smaller group changed preachers every so often through the years.
