Moses had memorable mountain moments with God. These Exodus chapters and others surrounding them narrate life-changing moments for him and his entire nation.
The wording of these two verses gave me pause when I read them today. We dream of mountain-top moments-moments that we fantasize about, wish we could have more of, or possible build our lives around.
If we aren’t careful, mountain-top moments will come and go, and the point of them is lost. The life-giving, life-changing truths may not take root or, worse, are totally missed.
I’d rather not waste the climb. To avoid that tragedy, I made these notes to self:
- There’s more to receive on the mountain that just a great view.
- While on the mountain, after I’ve recovered from the climb and taken in the view, listen. And take notes.
- Before starting the descent off the mountain, submit and commit to the Mountain Maker’s words.
