Courage or Comfort

We can choose courage or we can choose comfort, but we can’t have both. Not at the same time. (Brené Brown, university professor and author)

Brown is probably not thinking about soldiers in warfare when there really isn’t any choice. It often takes courage to do what they have to do. Rather, it’s likely she’s referring to the choices between doing something we know we should do or putting it off till a more convenient time. It may take courage for us to move out of our “comfort zone” to accomplish any worthy project.

Don’t try to avoid doing your duty … Those who are wise will find a time and a way to do what is right. (Ecclesiastes 8:3, 5)
