200 MPH On A Motorcycle? Sure, Why Not?

I have had the urge to get a motorcycle for the last 2 weeks or so and my wife doesn't think it's such a good idea. With 2 kids depending on me, I can't say that I disagree with her... BUT!

That brings me to a bigger question I have: why is it that men always want to do something dangerous? We want to fly planes, jump out of planes, be police officers, firemen, fight, play football, etc... If danger is attached to something, we want a part of it!

I wonder why that is. We start this from little kids. People don't have to teach us to jump off of roofs, ledges, or fences, we just come pre-programmed to do such things. It's not like we have a death wish or anything, we just thrive on danger.

Why is that?

For the most part, we don't want anybody to get hurt. I don't think it's an "evil" thing. Just look at what missionaries do; go into foreign countries, preach the gospel, give out Bibles even if it means their lives! There is nothing more dangerous or noble than that.

I would love to hear a sermon with some answers to this question. Anybody?
