There is no way to peace along the way of  safety. For peace must be dared, it is itself the great venture and can never be  safe. Peace is the opposite of security.

 To demand guarantees is to want to protect  oneself. Peace means giving oneself completely to God’s commandment, wanting no  security, but in faith and obedience laying … destiny … in the  hands of the Almighty God, not trying to direct it for selfish purposes.
