There is a story told about a time when humorist Will Rogers approached his friend Eddie Cantor for advice. It seems that Rogers was thinking about making some significant changes to his act, but he was worried about the dangers of taking such a risk. He wasn’t sure if his plan would work.
Eddie Cantor’s response was, “Why not go out on a limb? That’s where the fruit is!”
Jesus expects us to live fruitful lives. Sometimes that requires taking a risk. When is the last time you went out on a limb for Jesus?
“…I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit…”—John 15:16.
