We find it so easy to “play it safe” in our walk with Jesus and the life we are living for the Kingdom of God. Yet when we pray, “Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” we are at least making a commitment to be about the work of God’s Kingdom in the world – as Jesus put it, our lives are about seeking first the Lord and His righteousness (Matthew 6:33). This consuming passion should mark our display faith.
But far too frequently, we simply play it safe, even championing the “better safe than sorry” point of view. But as I refer to in my heartight.org article this week, “Power to Risk,” I warn us of this temptation to do nothing, to simple practice the “better safe than sorry” routine.
