Chapter 7: Risk

Executive Summary

A leader’s greatest opportunity for impact will almost always require the biggest sacrifice and greatest risk. There is no spiritual merit associated with increasing risk by failing to plan. Nothing about planning is incompatible with prayer. Unbiblical teaching on the character of God, suffering, and risk, has swept the North American church. Queen Esther’s story is most often referenced for the importance of timing and opportunity, with the words of Mordecai, “for such a time as this.” We can only make sense of these five words by remembering the five words of Esther, “If I perish, I perish.”

“I and my maids will fast as you do. When this is done, I will go to the king, even though it is against the law. And if I perish, I perish.”
~ Esther 4:16
