[Security] does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. (Helen Keller)
Keller concludes, “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.” This statement is all the more amazing when we understand the physical handicaps that she endured. We might wonder how she could just survive with the potential dangers of her blindness and deafness, but she did far more, achieving fame as a writer and speaker. Security is not our goal so much as opportunity.
Fear of the Lord leads to life, bringing security and protection from harm. (Proverbs 19:23)
