I read a book about the trials of women who have lived through and triumphed over addiction, abandonment, and abuse, and the author makes a really strong point.
The book says that all those who stand for Jesus are dangerous.
I'm not sure about you, but I've never thought of myself as "dangerous." I'm barely above five foot, and I'm pretty sure no one would ever perceive me as a threat.
But there's a word that is used simultaneously with dangerous, and it is risk.
