Reckless (What does it mean?)

Jeremy CampThis post is in reference Jeremy Camp’s new single listen to it here (Reckless). It is what, I think about when I hear the song.

Definition: having or showing no regard for danger or consequences; heedless; rash: a reckless driver ; a reckless attempt (dictionary.com)

This is not going against the wise counsel of those who love you.  It is not going off half-cocked driven by emotion.  It is not going on a mission trip for the adventure of it.

So what does it mean to be reckless:

  • It is taking brownies to the neighbor whose dog leaves presents in your yard.
  • It is sharing God’s love to a full movie theater at the end of a movie.
  • It is praying for blessings on the driver who just cut you off.
  • It is fasting so that God will move on someone else’s behalf.
  • It is telling those friends you used to party with, why you are different, what God did in your life (despite it being so awkward).
  • It is buying a used car, instead of a brand new one, so you can give more each month to those orphans in the Andaman Islands (link).
  • It is dancing and praising, even when the storms of life hit so hard you can barely stand.

  • It is living a life selflessly, serving others, fully living in your destiny and calling.

What do being reckless mean to you?
