Risk vs. Calculation

Two of my sons were almost opposites in personality; the older was a risk taker, the younger an estimator and calculator.  The older climbed the Half-Dome in Yosemite with two climbers who barely spoke English, and the younger booked passage to Thailand to attend a seminar on using the internet to make money.  Both were successful.  But the younger of the two is still with us, making money.

The basis of both their success, as I see it, is that the younger one was willing to work with God’s secret weapon—time.  His pergola sales accumulated over the year, and this Covid-19 year, when people stay at home, was a banner year.  The older one had heart, too.  But he couldn’t wait.

We work with what we have, and trust in the Lord.
