The question most often asked me in the past few days is, “Aren’t you concerned? Isn’t it dangerous over there?”
But should we make decisions based on the relative levels of danger (or safety) we could face? Should we be asking ourselves, “Let me see, now, that choice is more dangerous than this choice so I will do this instead of that.”
How is that any different from saying, “Let me see, now, this choice will make me more money than that choice”? Or, “This choice will bring me more happiness than that choice”?
Shouldn’t we rather be asking, “Let me see, now, which choice will most allow me to participate in what the Lord is doing right now (as best I can see that today)?”
Yes, I still intend going to Israel a week from tomorrow (unless He changes my plans). You can pray for me if you are a praying person. But, don’t pray that I will be “safe”. Pray that I will be allowed to partipate in what He is doing there.
