Demonstrate courage on the outside, even when you don’t feel it on the inside. (Ann Valentine, college president)

No doubt many military men and women who have survived wartime experiences would admit to being scared when the shells were firing. Being frightened in times of peril doesn’t mean you’re a coward; it’s a normal reaction to danger. As Nelson Mandela put it, “The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”

Take courage as you fulfill your duties, and may the Lord be with those who do what is right (2 Chronicles 19:11).
