You could define a dare as an act that requires the necessary courage or boldness to complete. Being transparent with someone can make you feel very vulnerable.
When you confide in your best friend, you trust that person with the most sensitive aspects of your life which can be risky. But when God says, “I knew you before you were formed”, it can be intimidating to know that God knows every little bit about you, even the stuff you try to hide from others. The good, the bad and the ugly.
CBOQ Youth’s 2009 theme is “I Dare You” … to become intimate with Jesus, to share with him the most vulnerable thoughts you keep to yourself, and to know him better than your best friend, better than your family.
