“You step out there knowing the dangers. And it’s intimidating, but that’s what it’s all about.” –Shaun White
Imagine if, on October 17, 2017, Shaun White gave up after he received 62 stitches from an accident while practicing. Imagine if, he decided the risk of competition was not worth another gold medal.
If you watched the Olympics on Tuesday night and saw Shaun White’s courageous awe-inspiring gold medal run, there is no doubt he made the right decision to compete.
As a family, we watched on the edge of our couch cushions, waiting to see if he could pull off a gold medal run. When the final score was announced, we jumped to our feet while Shaun White fell to his knees, overcome by emotion.
The risk of another injury was totally worth it!
Now, this Sunday, Pastor Dave will share about another kind of risk. The risk of suffering for our faith. In 1 Peter 4:1-7, Peter states that suffering is an expected part of a Christian’s life.
And just like Shaun White, the reward is certainly worth the risk. We hope to see you on Sunday.
