When we hear the word “risk” we immediately think it is something negative. The word alone has a negative feel to it. But that is not always the case. There are plenty of times when taking risks can be a good thing.
A more biblical way of talking about risk is using the phrase “to step out in faith.” It is something that can really change someone. When you take a risk for the Lord, it means you are going out of your way to do something for him. When you take normal risk that involves something other than the Lord, it turns out to be negative in most cases. It’s important for us as Christian to know the difference between positive and negative risks, and the Bible is a perfect place to look.
Below are 10 positive and negative risk-taking verses in the Bible:
2 Kings 7:4 “If we say, We will enter into the city, then the famine is in the city, and we shall die there: and if we sit still here, we die also. Now therefore come, and let us fall unto the host of the Syrians: if they save us alive, we shall live; and if they kill us, we shall but die.”
Proverbs 3:5, 6 “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”
Matthew 6:34 “Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
