What's Your Adventure?
This weekend, there was a lot of conversation about adventure. What defines an adventure? Is it skydiving or is it just having the courage to get out of bed in the morning? Is the local grocery store accurate in advertising a "produce adventure?" What does that mean? Attack of the Avacadoes? Captain is my most adventurous cat. He was often fearless. The other cats watched Captain, with admiration or concern, it was hard to tell. As Captain has matured, he has become afraid of people he doesn't know. Like so many of us, as we age our fear and resistance to adventure creeps into our lives. It's easy to stay "safe". But that's not really living. Moses told God, "look, I'll go talk to that Pharoah guy, but YOU better go with me!" (that is slightly paraphrased). Today consider taking the adventure presented to you. If you ask the Lord to go with you, even failing can be a win. What adventures have you taken? What have you learned from failure? Would you take another one?
