Volunteer firemen have a very dangerous job protecting homes, and rushing to give aid at automobile accident scenes. On the lighter side we have all heard of the kind hearted trained personnel rescuing a little child's kitten that is stuck up a tree.
Did you ever wonder what caused the animal to climb so far? At times it may have been the curiosity cats are famous for! On many occasions the climb was a quick escape from the neighbor's dog! The heights above served as the self preservation desperately needed. It was a matter of life and death and the tree became a refuge.
I know I have climbed a tree called Calvary. I am holding on securely to the high tower and stronghold provided for me there.( Psalm 46:11) "I will cling to the Old Rugged Cross!"
