“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rustdestroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." (Matthew 6:19-21, ESV)

 

risk

Chad Karger

Every step we take involves risk. 

This is especially apparent when those are big steps involving big decisions.

Even little steps require that we assume a certain amount of risk. When Jesus invited his disciples to leave behind their worry and to take note of the grass and flowers, he was asking them to risk the safety of their worry.

We don't think about worry being a safe place. But it's true. Sometimes we are more at home with our worry than we with the faith given to us by Jesus. It seems dangerous to hope. But hope we must.

Remember Red in the movie "Shawshank Redemption"? He has a line in that movie where he says, "Hope is a dangerous thing." Hope, in other words, increases expectations; it arouses desire. 

With every desire comes the risk of disappointment. To kill desire in favor of safety, however, is to choose the beginning of death. To look at little things in an effort to find the God of heaven at work, is to choose life; it is to accept the gift given.

Risk.
