Something to think about: So often in life, we tend to judge success in what we do by how far we have climbed up the ladder (or the climbing rope!) we are on. But, of course, if we are on the wrong ladder or rope, it doesn't make a lot of difference in the last analysis. In this scripture, the apostle Paul extends that thought to remind us that even when we are on the right climb we must never be satisfied with how far we have come. If we were given greater abilities and opportunities, perhaps more will be expected of us. But beyond our own lives, whatever we may have accomplished for good, God can always do more through us if we continue to press on.
