Had a thought the other day about not playing it safe. Wish I had read these verses then. Luke 19 tells the story that Jesus shared about the individuals who were left in charge of particular sums of money and how on the return of the master, two of them had increased what they had been given, while the other had just hidden it.
What a great example of the dilemma many of us face. Should we take a RISK or should we play it SAFE. Rewards come to those who RISK. Not stupid risks, but intentional, purposeful risks. Taking hold of what God has given us and doing something with it.
‘Risk your life and get more than you dreamed of. Play it safe and end up holding the bag.’ The Message I think I know which one I would rather have – how about you?
