Arrogance and Ego

Today, I would like to share a story with you...

A mountain climber wanted to climb the highest mountain. He began his adventure after many years of preparation, and since he wanted the glory just for himself, he decided to climb the mountain alone.

He started to climb but it began to get very late, and instead of preparing his tent to camp, he kept climbing until it got very dark. In the darkness of the night, the man could not see anything and he slipped and fell. He kept falling at great speed and in those moments, fear gripped him All the good and bad episodes of his life came to his mind. All of a sudden he felt the rope tied to his waist pull him very hard. His body was hanging in the air. He screamed: HELP ME GOD!

All of a sudden, a deep voice coming from the sky answered: "What do you want Me to do" "Save me God!" "Do you really think I can save you?" "Of course I believe You can." "Then cut the rope tied to your waist..." "There was a moment of silence; and the man decided to hold on to the rope. The next day he was found dead and frozen. He was only 10 feet away from the ground.

How attached are we to our rope, that is, our ideas, possessions and way of doing things? And how strong is our faith? Just let go. Let us give up arrogance and ego and let God do His job.
