• Christ and Church Life and Building Spirit and Bride

    基督與召會
    生命與建造
    那靈與新婦



    As a lover of Christ and a pursuer of truth, I write down my joys, memories and reflections.

    May God lead us all into the secret of His presence, and build us into the oneness of His body in love.

Risk (by Hugh Prather)

To laugh is to risk playing the fool

To weep is to risk appearing sentimental

To reach out for another is to risk involvement

To expose feelings is to risk exposing our true selves

To put your ideas and your dreams before the crowd is to risk loss

To love is to risk not being loved in return

To live is to risk dying

To hope is to risk despair

To try at all is to risk failure

But risk must be taken Because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing
The person who risks nothing  does nothing, has nothing, is nothing
They may avoid suffering and sorrow
but they simply cannot learn,change,feel,grow,love,live…
Chained by their attitudes they are slaves
Only the person who risks is free!
