This is a story about a mountain climber who wanted to climb the highest mountain. He began his adventure after many years of preparation. Since he wanted all the glory for himself, he decided to climb the mountain alone.

The night fell very heavy in the heights of the mountain, and the man could not see anything. All was black. Zero visibility. The moon and the stars were covered by thick clouds.

As he was climbing, only a few feet away from the top of the mountain, he slipped and fell into the air. Falling at a great speed, the climber could only see black spots as he went down. He was surrounded by the terrible sensation of being sucked by gravity. He kept falling…and in those moments of great fear, he was reminded of all the good and bad episodes of his life.

He was thinking about how close he was to death, when all of a sudden he felt the rope tied around his waist pull on him very hard.

His body was hanging in the air. Only the rope was holding him, and in that moment of dark stillness he had no other choice but to scream, “HELP ME GOD!”

All of a sudden, a deep voice coming from the darkness answered, “What do you want me to do?” 

The man replied, “Save me God!”

“Do you really think I can save you?”

“Of course I believe You can save me.”

“Then cut the rope tied to your waist.”

There was a long moment of silence. Finally, the man decided to hold on to the rope with all his strength.

The next day a rescue team found the climber dead and frozen… his body hanging on a rope… his hands holding on tight… just a few feet off the ground.  Author Unknown
