Matthew 25:14-30 (Parable of the Talents)
A play-it-safe kind of faith is eternally more dangerous. Jesus never calls us to risk-free faith, and being afraid reveals that we don't fully trust God's character. We are not in control. Our responsibility is to trust and obey, and God will handle the outcome. Don't let fear hold you back because God hasn't given you a spirit of fear, and his perfect love drives out fear!
