Don’t Fall Off the Edge


Don't Fall of the Edge“In my younger days of doing construction work in the industry, I was known as what they call the “high man.” … They called me the high man because whenever it got dangerous, whenever everybody else was afraid to do it, they would [come for me]…I would get up on the edge of structures [that were], sometimes, 15 stories, 40 stories, [and] 600 feet up in the air. [I was] comfortable…but I was on the edge.And there was one thing about being on the edge: …there was no room for error.  You knew that once you made a mistake, it was over…

“But that’s a dangerous way to live your life – living on the edge – and knowing that there is no room for error…It’s better to [live] in the center of the will of [God] than on the edge. Because, if you stumble a bit, in the middle of [His] will, you’re still there and you can get all the help you need. But if you’re on the edge… the devil will send several of his buddies ready to…give you a spiritual whipping… Most of the time, he will embarrass us so much until we don’t want to come back to the church.”
