“The servant given one thousand said, ‘Master, I know you have high standards and hate careless ways, that you demand the best and make no allowances for error. I was afraid I might disappoint you, so I found a good hiding place and secured your money. Here it is, safe and sound down to the last cent…’
The Master was furious...
Take the thousand and give it to the one who risked the most. And get rid of this “play-it-safe” who won’t go out on a limb.”
Matthew 25: 24,26,30 MSG
When you step out in faith and put yourself out there, life will push back.
It’s not going to be easy and you will make mistakes.
A mistake means that you are trying, so pick yourself up off the ground and try again.
Do something new.
Relate to people in a new way.
Reach out beyond your comfort zone.
Take that step of faith …again.
Failure is not fatal.
You will never get anywhere if you run back to what you know at every challenge.
God is calling you to grow.
So my friend, go ahead get out there, make lots of mistakes, risk and invest what God has placed in your hands.
