No Traction in Fear

“When fear shapes our lives, safety becomes our god. When safety becomes our god we worship the risk free life. Can the safety lover do anything great? Can the risk-averse accomplish noble deeds? For God? For others? No. The fear-filled cannot love deeply. Love is risky. The fearful cannot give to the poor. Benevolence has no guarantee of return… The worship of safety emasculates greatness.”

“No wonder Jesus wages such a war against fear.”

These quotes are from Fearless, Imagine Your Life Without Fear by Max Lucado. What a thought, living my life without fear. Is this possible? Who can help me in this quest; to live my life without fear? What do you think? Join me as we journey in discovering how we might live a life without fear.

One of the quotes I’d like to center on next time is; “Love is Risky”. Do you believe this is true?
