After so much rain, I really wanted to go climbing. It turns out that I did twice this week, which was a surprise to me. Showing a former student the ropes was fun and the conversation coming and going was substantial. A grigri is a very handy device for climbing with a first time climber since I would not have a safe belay otherwise. I think this new climber will come again since he didn’t have much fear of height, proceeded carefully, and wanted to challenge himself, needing only the slightest encouragement to continue trying confidently. But isn’t that true for all of life? Where do you obtain lack of fear, care, and confidence to try? Common grace allows that people can muster some awareness within themselves but for the challenges of life that really count, living in a way that is pleasing to God, the manifold grace of God is the only sure, lasting source for overcoming.
