Been thinking alot about taking risks lately. I don’t want to be a man who changes just for the sake of change, but I also don’t want to be a man who watches life pass him by because he’s grown comfortable and complacent. May God help us to know the difference and give us the courage to step out when he is calling us onward. Let these quotes stir you to action where needed!
