Risktakers and Caretakers

Today in the Word, February 28, 1997, p. 35

Someone has said that there are two kinds of people in the church: risktakers and caretakers. If the risktakers in the church are fueled by the caretakers, they will all go to the undertaker with little to show for their lives. Playwright Neil Simon said, "If no one ever took risks, Michelangelo would have painted the Sistine floor."
