With the little I have seen, I come to conclude that there are two kinds of people.
The wise ones, and the others (whom I choose to call the ordinary ones)!
Every pilgrim knows that he is only in a place on pilgrimage, and is expected to return to his original country.
However, the wise pilgrim knows that even on his pilgrimage, he must not ply any route that doesn’t lead homeward.
“Pass the time of your sojourning here in fear:” (1 Peter 1:17)
“Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul;” (1 Peter 2:11)
The wise ones arrive well, but one cannot be sure if the others will finally make it home.
Fellow Pilgrim, do not claim wisdom, prove it!
