Courage

It has been said that what has been attributed as ferocity to the tiger is due to its "incredible audacity and courage." It simply sees no danger, knows no fear, brooks no delay, uses no artifice, abandons no object of attack. Are these the elements of Christian courage? If we were filled with a deep sense of God's presence and power, and of our own privileges and responsibilities, would this not blind us to many of the things that disturb and terrify, and inspire to many an act and work which we now dread? "Be strong and of a good courage" (Deut 31:6).
