Mountaintop or Valley?

Spiritual Truths from Contemporary Life to Build You Up

I was thinking…

Recently I met Bedouin tribesmen in the arid deserts of the Middle East. Nomadic, they move from location to location with one focus—to find water. Water keeps them alive and going.

He asked me to take a panoramic look at the landscape and asked, “where do you find greenery?”

“In the valleys,” I noted.

“Ah,” he said, “a spiritual lesson.” We are often against God taking us into the valleys. Except in this setting, valleys are the place to find and grow life.

Think about it. If we begin to consider valleys positively, and mountain-tops negatively, then it is better for life to go from valley-to-valley, than from mountain-top to mountain-top. After all, in God’s view of things, valleys are the where the vegetation is found. Do we still only want to stay on the mountain-top to dry up and die?

What do you think?
