THE ROPE

 

     The story tells about a mountain climber, who wanted to climb the highest mountain.  He began his adventure after man years of preparation, but since he wanted the glory just for himself, he decided to climb alone.

     The night felt heavy in the heights of the mountain, and the man could net see anything.  All was black.  Zero visibility, and the moon and the stars were covered by clouds.

     As he was climbing, only a few feet away from the top of the mountain, he slipped and fell into the air, falling at a great speed.  The climber could only see black spots as he went down, and the terrible sensation of being sucked down by gravity. He kept falling…and in those moments of great fear, it came to his mind all the good and bad episodes of his life.

     He was thinking now about how close death was getting, when all of a sudden he felt the rope tied to his waist pull him very hard.  His body was hanging in the air.  Only the rope was holding him, and in that moment of stillness he screamed:  HELP ME GOD!

     All of a sudden, a deep voice coming from the shy answered: “What do you want me to do?”  He answered, “Save me God.”  God said, “Do you really believe I can save you?”  Of course I believe you can,” the man replied.  “Then cut the rope tied to your waist,” God said to him.

     There was a moment of silence, and the man decided to hold on to the rope with all his strength.

     The rescue team tells, that the next day a climber was found dead and frozen….his body hanging from a rope.  His hands holding tight to it….

                            ONLY TEN FEET FROM THE GROUND….

     And you?  How attached are you to your rope?  Will you let go?

 

Don’t ever the things from God.

For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand

And says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.

Isaiah 41:13
