The opportunity opened up unexpectedly. Now it was up to me: yes or no.
Which should I decide?
“No” was safer . . .
It was surer. It carried less potential for controversy, now and later. It would be understood and accepted.
. . . while “yes” had an edge.
It was dangerous. It birthed discomfort and uncertainty. It might be a daring act of love, but not all would see it that way.
I decided to lay it down for awhile on this Monday night, and go meet my friends for an open dive into the Word.
