Safety should not be our highest aim in life. Playing it safe keeps in the never ending land of the soulless. Jesus promised us that we would suffer and be persecuted.
Passion takes us out of the harbor. At sea we encounter calm, safe sailing and storms. It is part of the deal. We can’t to where we want to go without setting sail. Leaving the harbor is not safe. Jesus promises us that it will be worth it.
If the highest aim of a captain were to preserve his ship, he would keep it in port for ever.” ~~St. Thomas Aquinas
