You could buy a lottery ticket—that’s taking a chance.
You could close your eyes, stick out your arms, and take a chance crossing the street.
Or, ignoring chest pains, a dull tooth ache, or blood flowing from a cut—those are chances.
Is there a better way? Isn’t there a better way to deal with our health, career, family, or even with God? Do we have to take chances?
Not if we are smart.
Annual checkups with our doctor, reviews at work, time with family, time in the Word and prayer—all better ways than simply taking chances.
