Whether it's Jesus saying take up your cross and follow me, or whoever would save his life will lose it, or sending the disciples out into the lake knowing a big storm is coming... being "safe" never seems to be high on His agenda. Which makes sense... for he can protect us from anything! Safe is just not something Jesus worries about.
And yet, as Christians we pray so much to be safe. To arrive safe, stay safe on campouts, safe while sharing the gospel... Keep the missionaries safe... And I get it I really do. I'm a parent - and I want my kids to be safe!
But it is clear from His word, that God has bigger plans than safe.
