Sermon Illustrations: Ambition

How astonished these people will be, if they arrive in heaven, to find the angels, who are much wiser than they, laying no schemes to be made archangels!" Maxims for Meditation, as quoted in Spurgeon, Charles H. My Sermon Notes: Vol 1 p20

Jon Krakauer finally reached the summit of Mt Everest 10th May, 1996. Several of those who had climbed with him had died on the way. Later he wrote, "I understood on some dim, detached level that [it] was a spectacular sight. I'd been fantasising about this moment, and the release of emotion that would accompany it, for many months. But now that I was finally here, standing on the summit of Mt Everest, I just couldn't summon the energy to care."
