In two similar parables, the Parable of the Talents and the Parable of the Minas, we see how God blesses risk. The guy with 5 talents takes a risk, and makes 5 more. The guy with 2 talents takes a risk and makes 2 more. The first guy with 1 mina takes a risk and makes another 10. The second guy takes a risk with his 1 mina and makes 5 minas. In every single case, the people who take a risk NEVER FAIL. Every risk pays off. God has not created you for failure, and He has not created you to play it safe. You were created for passion, adventure, great risk and great reward. The King of the Universe has placed His trust in you. So shake off your fear, take a deep breath, and GO FOR IT!!
