It’s tempting to play it safe because you’re afraid. Afraid of failing. Afraid of looking naive (at best) or stupid (at worst). And afraid of what others might think. While this may not seem like a spiritual issue, it is. Because your fear creates a huge barrier that gets in the way of you and God, you and others, and you and the life God has created you to live. Well fear no more. Because the fact of the matter is that God’s love is so great nothing can separate you from it. So embrace this day as a great adventure. Live it to the fullest. Use the spiritual gifts God has given you to serve others. Love extravagantly. And if you listen carefully, you’ll hear God cheering you on to take even more risks, go on even greater adventures and do even more outrageous things for God.
