One of my readers, Jeff Johnstone, sent this picture in with the below thoughts to share. I liked the analogy and thought you might too.
“Every time I see this picture it reminds me of a valuable spiritual lesson. While all students of Christian Science are growing higher in their understanding, we all have different challenges to work out. And what route might work for some, might not be the best path for others, as we all have our own demonstrations to make. But as long as we keep focused, striving for a more expansive view regardless of the sometimes rugged terrain ahead, with persistence and patience we will summit the mountain.
“Also, each stair landing could represent a resting place on our ascent, and become a spring-board that gives us the necessary inspiration to climb higher, to keep gaining additional understanding, give us clearer views, and get us all the way to the top!”
