Pause

Some mountains are tall, and some mountains are small.

But whatever your mountain is, God is already there.

Listen

The Lord said to Moses, “Come up to me on the mountain and wait there. I’ll give you the stone tablets with the instructions and the commandments that I’ve written in order to teach them.”

So Moses and his assistant Joshua got up, and Moses went up God’s mountain. Moses had said to the elders, “Wait for us here until we come back to you. Aaron and Hur will be here with you. Whoever has a legal dispute may go to them.”

Then Moses went up the mountain, and the cloud covered the mountain.

Think

If you’ve climbed a mountain, hill, ladder, or even a step stool you know that when you get to the top your view looks different. It’s called perspective, and it can be eye-opening because when you live within the same perspective all the time, you see the same things in the same way — all the time.

God is inviting Moses to climb a mountain in order to receive the Ten Commandments. This is a world-changing moment. These commandments will have a dramatic impact on the lives of the people through their relationships with each other and with God.

This is what happens when God invites us to the “mountaintop.” It’s an invitation to change our perspective through an encounter with God, which in turn impacts our lives. This invitation to come to the mountaintop and encounter God comes to us every day. Sometimes the mountains are big, sometimes they are small but everyone is offered the opportunity to see the world differently and grow in our faith.

O God, you challenge me each and every day to see the world as you see it. Help me to have the courage to take each step upwards in realizing your call for me. Amen.

Go climb your mountain and see that God is holy!
