What’s An Adventure?

A lot people use Merriam Webster as their choice dictionary, I prefer the Oxford Dictionary myself. Their definition of adventure is as follows.

“Adventure- An unusual and exciting, typically hazardous, experience or activity”

This sounds just as a much like a definition for “life”, as what it does a definition for “adventure.” At the very least a description of what life is. Steve Zissou saw life as an adventure, “this” is Steve, in a broad way, saying “life”, life is an adventure. Life truly is just as unusual as what it is exciting, it is hazardous, for many it is not safe and often has just as much discomfort as comfort, yet  ultimately, in the end, it brings our existence meaning through each experience, as well as, activity, we face. This is an adventure, life is an adventure, and for the Christian life the goes doubly so. We can either allow adventure to find us, resisting, kicking and screaming, attempting to make a nice little life ourselves or, we can go looking for it, embracing it, bringing to our lives not just change, but also growth, to the point that it can be said of us “you are not the hobbit you once were.” God did not give us this life to sit around lugubriously, doing nothing more than biding our time by building a comfortable lifestyle for ourselves, until we are called home, He gave us this life to live it, in all of its excitement, in of all its joy, and in all of its adventure. You may set out in ten days to find the Jaguar shark that ate your friend, but you can find just as much adventure in your own backyard, as what you can anywhere else in the world.The Christian life is not safe, nor is it easy, and at times it is not even comfortable, but it is worth it.

“This is an adventure.”
