DEVOTION: When God becomes man, that Man, of all others, is least comforted by God, at His greatest need. There is a mystery here which, even if I had the power, I might not have the courage to explore. Meanwhile, little people like you and me, if our prayers are sometimes granted, beyond all hope and probability, had better not draw hasty conclusions to our own advantage. If we were stronger, we might be less tenderly treated. If we were braver, we might be sent, with far less help, to defend far more desperate posts in the great battle. (Pg 14)
So, there’s so much in this paragraph but….read it again and then focus on the end.
Are you brave? Do you consider yourself brave?
Read that sentence again. “If we were braver, we might be sent, with far less help, to defend far more desperate posts in the great battle.”
The battle is daily. Some of us are on the front lines. Some of us sit on the couch and watch it happen. I don’t want to be on the couch. I want to be brave. I want to see and explore the more “desperate posts” and make a difference.
Complacency is not an option.
Apathy is not an option.
Today, the battle rages on.
Are you brave enough to join the fight?
