A couple times a year, we drive across the country. Each time, we see the same thing: digital billboards with live updates of all the people who have died doing this exact activity.
But there’s a simple problem to highway deaths.
Just lower the speed limit to 5 miles per hour. Nobody dies in 5 mile-per-hour car crashes.
But, of course, no one ever gets anywhere either.
That’s the trade off.
Going forward always has risk. But usually we can calculate that risk, to see if it’s worth it.
Jesus, standing on top of the waves, told Peter–still leaning against the edge of boat–“Come.”
Fortunately, risk is relative.
