"It Takes Courage"


It's an emotion that comes from experiencing the trials and tribulations that we as human beings tend to encounter in life and eventually overcoming them. In other words, courage is the quality of mind or spirit that enables a person to face difficulty, without fear ...

It truly takes courage to refuse the advances of this world. Courage to quell the pressures that lead to offend the Lord. Such as drugs, being promiscuous (in a sexual sense) or alcohol; but instead they prefer to maintain themselves pure (1 Corinthians 6:19-20) ...

The bibles shares the stories of many men, women and youths that displayed different stages of courage. At this moment, we're going to talks about Daniel who wouldn't defile himself with the king's food (Daniel 1:8); but instead he (Daniel) asked if he could spent 10 days without eating the king's food (Daniel 1:12).

It truly takes courage to be a leader in a world full of so much chaos. To stand up for what's right and teach all those around you a lesson of righteousness without saying a word; but through your own testimony (Titus 2:7). Therefore, continue to do what's right and show the world that serving the Lord isn't a waste of time (Colossians 3:23-24) ...
