'Ready to climb.'
Life's climbs can not only be exhilarating but also frightening at times.
Who is belaying you on life's steep slopes?
Do you have adequate protection in case you fall?
Are you ready to lead a climb?
Love from the center of who you are; don't fake it. Run for dear life from evil; hold on for dear life to good. Be good friends who love deeply; practice playing second fiddle.
Don't burn out; keep yourselves fueled and aflame. Be alert servants of the Master, cheerfully expectant. Don't quit in hard times; pray all the harder. Help needy Christians; be inventive in hospitality.
