You can’t outsmart the game of life by standing on the sidelines and avoiding the tenuous, the difficult, even the panic-inducing moments that come at you when you least expect them. That’s not how you play the game. Either you set your face to the wind and charge ahead, relying on all the tools God gave you or you don’t play at all.
For to play is to live. And to live is to win.
But you’ll never win if you never play, nor will you ever truly live the way God intended. So get off the sidelines and get in the game.
