As we grow older, we become more risk-averse. We try to avoid being hurt or making mistakes. But the rule of risk and reward still applies – it is only through taking risks and trying something new that we learn just what we’re capable of. In the spiritual life, this means listening closely to God, discerning where we think he might be leading us, and then taking the leap. We may be right, we may be wrong, but we’ll never know if we don’t dive in.
This Sunday we conclude our series, Still Small: Discerning God’s Voice in a Noisy Life by looking at what God is inviting us to step into next.
