KEY VERSEProverbs 24:26
An honest answer is like a kiss of friendship.

I want you to know me and my love in such a way that you live courageously—fearlessly following me into the unknown. I want you to trust me so much that even though steps of faith can be intimidating, missing out on an adventure with me is far more costly. I want you to have the freedom to love and serve those that most avoid. Experiencing the life I have created for you is where you will find true fulfillment. Watching from the sidelines will bore you and may cause you to grow disinterested or bitter.

Don’t trust your instinct more than me. I am far more reliable. My way is always correct, so walk with me with confidence. You may not know where you are going, and there’s no need to figure it out. Follow me on a path of hope, life, and love. Don’t worry about getting things wrong. It won’t change the fact that I love you and am with you.

Are you ever afraid to do the right thing? Today, fear God and take action on what he prompts you to do or say.
