Tonight, it feels like life is short. ‘Face opportunities responsibly,’ my good friend said. Not quite sure what it means, but I know opportunity and responsibility must be related. Opportunities present choices, and most choices offer options that vary in value.
Obviously, this means you sometimes have to let interesting opportunities pass you by when you’ve been entrusted with more important things. But less often do I consider that one day, I’ll likely be faced with the opportunity to do something interesting and important, but I’ll be scared.
Running from such a situation would be easy, and easier to justify as well. But it would still be irresponsible. Sometimes, the right thing to do is to follow your heart when God seems to be giving you everything you want but it all seems too big for you to handle.
That’s a scary thought, isn’t it?
