It’s one thing to take risks for the sake of taking risks and to be a thrill seeker to the extent that you are careless with your life. At that point it becomes all about you and the adrenaline rush.
But to invest in people and to set out to leave a mark of kindness and service is an adventure in quite a different way. You risk being rejected and misunderstood. But in the end it’s worth any risk to know that there will be more people in heaven because you showed them Jesus.
Not just talked about Jesus. Not just preached sermons about Jesus or led Bible studies about Jesus or discoursed on Jesus but actually lived like Jesus and in a way became Jesus to the least of these. People that would have never picked up a Bible to read it read your life and saw Jesus there.
That’s the best kind of adventurous life.
