“To avoid situations in which you might make mistakes may be the biggest mistake of all.” –Peter McWilliams
What makes us so afraid to fail?
We’ve heard countless stories of people that have failed hundreds of times before succeeding, but we still shudder at the thought of failure.
For me, the biggest reason I don’t take chances and thus, fail to be effective is pride. What holds you back from taking a chance?
I think that risk taking is something that Christians are called to do…it’s called stepping out on faith.
Don’t make a mistake trying not to make a mistake today. Get risky and share your faith. Have the tough conversation with your spouse or child. Take the risk of people talking and spend time with the unlovable. Ask God to guide, then take the chance!
