Worth The Risk?

by Deborah Ann Belka

Would I preach the Word,
if I knew, I'd be stoned
would I be so willing
if I knew, I'd be disowned?

Would I speak the Truth,
if I knew, I'd be killed
would I be so bold
if I knew, I'd be stilled?

Would I shine the Light,
if I knew, I'd be rejected
would I be so confident
if I knew, I'd be dejected?

Would I proclaim the Way,
if I knew, I'd be refused
would I be so convinced
if I knew, I'd be abused?

Is it worth the risk,
for me to say a word . . .
is it worth my life to share
the Good News I've heard?

Acts 7:58
King James Version

"And cast him out of the city,
and stoned him: and the witnesses
laid down their clothes at a young
man's feet, whose name was Saul."
