A Proverb

I recently stumbled upon this great African Proverb:"If while climbing a tree you insist on going beyond the top, the earth will be waiting for you."I've spent so much of my life trying to go beyond the top of so many projects and plans I've had. I've done these things in hopes that I would somehow be more to others, God, and even more to my own self. But every time I pursue these "beyond the top" projects my pride, spurred on by my insecurity, comes before my fall.
