  1. I used to be a great believer in “spiritual thrill-seeking,” and I still believe it’s at the heart of Christ’s teaching. But…

    Sometimes you take a risk and it opens up a whole, wonderful new world to you.

    And sometimes you take a risk and you just get injured. Or worse, somebody else gets injured.

    My resources for recovering from that sort of experience aren’t particularly rich.

  2. John Piper talks about taking risks in his book Don’t Waste Your Life. He makes a good case against our perception of safety, saying it isn’t safe at all and what feels risky isn’t necessarilly more dangerous than what feels safe. But he continues to show that risk is a real threat to losing something, and it’s possible that we fear losing something which isn’t worth keeping.

    Like Shakespeare says, “It’s better to have loved and lost than never loved at all.”
