My second daughter has a unique hobby- she will climb any height. She would climb dining chairs to get on the dining table. She would climb chairs to get on my study table also. She feels like a conqueror everytime she surmounts each obstacle.
We have to keep our eyes closely on her. As we prayed one night, I picked her from my study table and said to her, “Madam, you cannot play at such heights. There is no room for such”.
Beloved, a man that is on the ground has enough room to play around without a fear of falling. However, the man that has climbed heights knows that there is a lot at stake at the level where he is.
Heights call for caution. Everyone who has a job of climbing heights know that safety precautions cannot be joked with. He knows this is not a game and he is not a clown.
He carries all the tools he also needs. It is a waste of time getting to the top and discovering that the tools needed was never picked from the ground.
Mistakes are costlier when made at great heights. It can cost more than a fall. It can cost a life. If you work on a cliff, you must learn to build railings all around you.
Do you know the charge to the Church at Ephesus had something about heights and falling?
“So remember the heights from which you have fallen, and repent [change your inner self—your old way of thinking, your sinful behavior—seek God’s will] and do the works you did at first [when you first knew Me]; otherwise, I will visit you and remove your lampstand (the church, its impact) from its place—unless you repent.”
Revelation 2:5 AMP
Don’t forget that “Heights call for caution”.
