A Risk

Proverbs 22:4

“The reward of humility and the fear of Jehovah is riches, and honor, and life.”

Once, in the middle of a discussion class, a thought occurred to me. We had been talking about how artists react to their art as Christians. This reminded me a quote I heard during a Ted talk,

If you’re not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never come up with anything original. ~Ken Robinson from “The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything

Ken Robinson had given a Ted talk asking the question: “Do schools kill creativity?” (https://www.ted.com/talks/ken_robinson_says_schools_kill_creativity) In this talk, he hit the nail on the head when he talked about how children seem to be fearless. They do not create things so be recognized, instead they create in order to give you a picture of what they see in the world. Another thing he mentioned stuck out to me. Ken noted how children do not fear being wrong.

What a profound statement!

In the bible Jesus rebuked His disciples who did not let children come close, telling them to, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these” (Matthew 19:14). Don’t let your fear of tomorrow hinder the risks you take today.

If you cannot grasp the ideal of “what if” your life, your world, will never be more than what it is.

Be blessed today.
