Lurking fears. They’re illogical–perhaps. But they’re also undeniable!
I watched a father and his two small daughters at play. He’s in the water; one of them jumps into his arms. The dry one gleefully watches her sister leap. She dances up and down as the other splashes. But when her dad invites her to do the same, she shakes her head and backs away. A living parable!
How many people spend life on the edge of the pool? Consulting caution. Ignoring faith. Never taking the plunge. They’re content to experience life vicariously through others. For fear of the worst, they never enjoy life at its best.
