A Thought: Try Courage.

Today may call for you to be Brave about something. To speak up, rather than be silent, because your silence may indicate consent, takes courage. To be silent, and listen, when you really want to influence with your opinion, takes courageous Wisdom. To restrain from retaliation because “they” need to know what “they” sound like or what “their” behavior feels like, takes courage. To step in and intervene to help (whether requested or not), takes courage because you do not always know to what extent the circumstances or consequences may result from your offer for assistance…and that takes Courage. Courage is highly unappreciated, rarely recognized, yet, has daily opportunities presented to each of us. May you and I exercise some appropriate Courage today! Have a fearless Friday!

Psalm 56:3 “When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. In God, whose word I praise—in God I trust and am not afraid. What can mere humans do to me?
