Risky Behavior

4 thoughts on “Risky Behavior”

  1. It seems that so much in life that we value, that holds an important place in our lives, does come with a risk. Love, family, work, passions, they’re all an intricate journey, with chances of pain and beauty along the way.

  2. Oh very risky indeed – to make yourself completely open and vulnerable. Yes, that is Jesus on the Cross, arms outstretched in the greatest love.

    This is reminiscent of a conversation that we had in our liturgical leadership class where we talked about the risk of liturgy. Liturgy is love – imagine if we put it that way each week?

  3. This is related to my post on trust, isn’t it? 1 Cor. tells us that love always trusts. And yes, they can both be risky. When I was writing my post on trust, I looked up all the Bible scriptures with that word. Most of the scriptures exhorted, “Trust in the Lord.” I couldn’t help thinking how this foundational trust impacts all of our relationships. Even when people fail, our trust in Him can deepen our trust.

    Easy to say, not always easy to practice 🙂

  4. Hi there!

    You said a mouthful of good stuff — reminders, encouragement and also challenging because indeed love is risky but loving and trusting in and through Christ is how I love because when the hurts come I am comforted in Him.

    His love for us is unfailing and unconditional and I’m so thankful.

    You blessed me in your sharing.

    Blessings to you!
