I did not realize it had been so long since I have posted on my blog. How time flies when we are busy. I just downloaded and read the first chapter of Max Lucado's new book, FEARLESS. I am sharing an excerpt here that I found inspiring:

"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. They cannot give to the poor. Benevolence has no guarantee of return. The fear-filled cannot dream wildly. What if their dreams sputter and fall from the sky? The worship of safety emasculates greatness. No wonder Jesus wages such a war against fear."

Think I will have to read this one.
