Risk vs Security
Call me cautious. Falling is not something on which I do not take a chance. When and if the time comes that the family says I need a cane, I will go cane shopping.
There is this silly riddle making its way around Facebook. I’ve seen it. I’ve been challenged. I have not yet surrendered to a giraffe face. That is because I do not take risks. So many of my friends now have giraffe faces that I have to read the names beside the profile to see who is posting.
My face is mine. It is going to stay that way, and maybe in a few days someone will leak the answer to the riddle.
Life is full of risks. We risk our money. We risk our lives when we drive. We are at risk when we buy fresh produce. There is one place I have no absolute risk. Eternity. Not me. I can be sure of an eternal home with God in Heaven.
The Bible says in I John 5:11-12 “and this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He that hath the Son, hath life; he that hath not the Son of God, hath not life. These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye might know that ye have eternal life and that ye might believe on the name of the Son of God.”
There is no risk in believing that Jesus has done as He has promised.
