People don’t choose to be courageous; they just decide not to be afraid any more. (Bob Goff, best-selling author)

Courage can be demonstrated only when there is some kind of danger that tests one’s character. Fear of personal harm or just fear of failure will keep many people from moving ahead or taking a chance in an uncertain venture. We can overcome the fear by facing it and determining to proceed regardless of the unknown future. That takes courage.

Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong (1 Corinthians 16:13).
