Take the Risk

“Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.” – T.S. Elliot

Taking risk requires courage that only Christ can give. One of the biggest risk I took was marriage not because Thammie was hard to live with but because I don’t know what the future holds for us.

All I knew was that i was going to marry this girl, I would continue my work as a pastor and provide for her, make babies and change the world. But to say I was trained for what was in store – I would say I wasn’t. I had to decide to take the risk. I had to decide to go a little farther every day. It means not afraid to make failures and accept it as part of the risk. It is how I react to failure that would decide if I am failing.

So men – take the risk!!!

By the way a good book about taking risk and failing is John Maxwell’s book Failing Forward: Turning Mistakes into Stepping Stones for Success. Click on the tile if you want to purchase the book.
