Reckless Abandon.

I don’t know about you but when I hear the word “reckless” it’s not a good thing. It means that someone is being destructive and could potentially harm themselves or others. It can also mean a very expensive ticket should you be pulled over for reckless driving.

It’s kind of funny if you think about it. Take the word reckless apart and you  have “reck” and “less” so in theory you would have “less recks”. That would be a good thing, right?

But what about abandon? That doesn’t exactly sound fantastic either. When you abandon something or someone doesn’t that mean that you no longer care about the well-being of what or whom you’ve abandoned? You’ve walked away and cut all ties to what or whom you once belonged.

reck⋅less:

utterly unconcerned about the consequences of some action; without caution

a⋅ban⋅don:

to leave completely and finally; forsake utterly; desert; to give up the control of: to yield (oneself) without restraint or moderation

*courtesy www.dictionary.com

I read that to mean we should “give ourselves to God, completely, without restraint or moderation and with no concern of the consequences”. Completely = mind, soul, body, spirit. I’m okay with that. I mean really, who else would I want to have utter and complete control in my life?
