To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong (Joseph Chilton Pearce , late American author).

Many people hesitate to step out to do something original, whether it’s a written piece, a new invention, or a cooking recipe for fear it might not be received well. To paraphrase Pearce, the same might be true of living “a productive life.” Such fear shrinks your ambition, for sure, and it may deprive the world of something very beneficial. Be courageous to step out and share.

Fearing people is a dangerous trap, but trusting the Lord means safety (Proverbs 29:25).
