Ginger and I have been using a theme a lot lately. We will share a situation that requires a decision and we’ll say, “what will take courage?” or “that way isn’t too courageous.” Knowing that we as people tend to take an easy way whenever possible, Ginger and I are challenging ourselves to at least consider the courageous path.
An observation- the Christian life has the germs to be a courageous life.
A further observation- we choose to make it boring by hiding behind under-examined ideologies, large “cause-oriented”, episodic involvements that don’t really take any courage to hold.
Eastern Orthodox Christians have a saying, “When Jesus came out of the tomb on Easter morning, the whole world came out with Him.”
The world around you and I is emerging out of the tomb.
Let’s go live with some grace-infused courage.
