driven to danger

2 Corinthians 11:26-28

2Co 11:26  often away on trips, facing dangers from rivers, dangers of robbers, dangers from my own race, danger from Gentiles, dangers in the city, dangers in the desert, dangers at sea, dangers from false brothers;
2Co 11:27  in hard work and hardship, through many a sleepless night, in hunger and thirst, often without food, in cold and exposure.
2Co 11:28  And, apart from other things, there is that daily urgency pressing on me because I am concerned for all the churches.

driven to danger

Paul describes his life as being in constantly in danger because he is concerned for all the churches his team is responsible for. That is shepherding. A good shepherd puts the safety of the sheep ahead of his or her own.  His was not a reckless endangerment. It was being driven to danger to protect the people of God.

LORD, give us more missionaries with a heart to establish your church where it is needed most — in spite of the dangers involved.
