When we allow fear to limit our actions we begin to serve safety instead of God. Is risk-free living our ultimate goal? Is being safe what the most important thing in life?
Think of this, a person who worships safety never accomplished anything note-worthy. History is filled with the acts of the bold, the brave. The fear filled don’t dream big dreams, risk-takers do.
When the disciples dropped their nets and walked away fro their jobs, neighborhoods, families…everything they knew, were they making the ‘safe’ choice? How about Abraham when God told him to leave his people and everything he had ever known to go into a strange land? God didn’t even tell Abraham where the destination of the journey was!
The worship of safety emasculates greatness.
– Max Lucado, Fearless
As a Christ-Follower you are called to greatness. What is it that God is asking you to do that you’ve been afraid to try? Well turn that computer off and go do it!
