The Courageous in My Everyday Life (September 18, 2013)
Last week, Americans remembered the events of 9-11 and the courage shown by those we call our first responders. Most people never face situations requiring that kind of courage.
But, every day presents opportunities to show moral courage.
Today it takes courage to speak up against the unrighteous social policies our governments are embracing.
Sadly it seems that too many Christians are cowed into silence when courage in the face of opposition and ridicule has been our history. When tempted today to bend truth to tolerance, we would do well to remember the words of protestant reformer, Martin Luther:
Let us take care, lest in our endeavors to arrest discords, we be bound to fight against the holy word of God and bring down upon our heads a frightful deluge of inextricable dangers, present disaster, and everlasting desolations.”
