I once heard someone say, “What is it with us and mountaintops? Why do we keep going up them?” Yet this morning I can see the appeal. The road stretches out before me. Will I go up and around it or will I attempt to scale it while keeping my eye on its tallest peek? Why do we scale mountaintops at all? Did it begin with Moses and Decalogue? I begin my ascent without an answer to my question. Nearer to Him is where I want to be.
