No matter what we do, some degree of risk is unavoidable. Because we can't control our situations entirely we have no way to guarentee the results. And so, even though we can't completely avoid risk, instead we mitigate against it as much as is humanly possible. But not all risk is necessarily a bad thing. Sure, it may be risky, but sometimes it is necessary in order for what may have previously seemed completely out of reach to become attainable. Without some measure of risk we will never live into the fullness of what God purposes and plans for our lives.
