The most dangerous thing

Reality is many-sided, with numerous contrasts and paradoxes.

Here is one:
If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will find it.
– Jesus

And here is another:
We are to regard existence as a raid or great adventure; it is to be judged, therefore, not by what calamities it encounters, but by what flag it follows and what high town it assaults. The most dangerous thing in the world is to be alive; one is always in danger of one’s life. But anyone who shrinks from that is a traitor to the great scheme and experiment of being. – G.K. Chesterton

What flag are you following?
Where is Jesus leading you these days?
Don’t shrink back. Walk forward bravely.
