A few weeks ago, I shared a few comments on the stunning story of the “overcrowding epidemic” that is currently happening on the slopes of Mount Everest. Overcrowding on Mount Everest betrays what our culture worships. We bow down at the altar of the impossible so as to be seen as the conquerors, the champions. We seek out the unattainable and unachievable goal in hopes of ascending the hero’s stage. Such is why the reckless Everest climbers serve as living parables of the human heart.
“Indeed, we have all received grace upon grace from his fullness.” (John 1:16)
