Just Wondering…

I was just wondering what you thought about risk. You know what I mean, when was the last time you stepped out of your comfy zone to risk anything for the one who died for you? Risk involves living your life differently from the world around you, which includes going against the grain of what the world sees as “normal.” Which, by the way, is truly abnormal and evil. Risk means you might have to forego your wants, needs, and desires to fulfill what the one who created you has created you for. I am reminded of a young teenage girl who risked her life and position to fast, pray, and approach a king who could have killed her instantly. When you think about risk, think about Esther. Risk is more than giving up your latte, your ungodly relationship, or what you think you deserve. Makes one wonder if you have risked anything at all…
