Is Courage Contagious?

“Courage is contagious. When a brave man takes a stand, the spines of others are often stiffened.”

Billy Graham

Questions: 

1. Who taught you how to be courageous?

2. How would you define courage?

  1. Thank you once again for your reassurance. I always find it encouraging to know I’m on the right track, at least somewhat.

  2. Lawrence,
    You brought up several good points. One of which is to practice what you pray. I need to remember that God is not a magic genie who grants wishes . He is our Father who will guide us, but it is up to us to do the walking.

  3. I used to have a MAJOR issue keeping my mouth closed. There’s one main important thing to remember. God is our father, who can defeat Him? Nobody and nothing can. I always tell people that my Dad can beat up their’s. Whenever you feel faced with the desire to remain silent, picture Jesus Christ begging for pardons to our sins on a daily basis.

    Does He not say if you deny me before mankind, I will deny you before my Father. I’m sure we’d all rather have Him with us, than against us. I use that image whenever I lack courage to stand for Christ. If that doesn’t work, try good old-fashioned prayer. Each time you pray, practice what you pray. God will ALWAYS be with you; truly that’s all we need.

  4. We should all start a new epidemic for Christ. Let’s ALL stand up for His kingdom and put it “back on the map.”

  5. I guess life made me somewhat courageous. I was always taught to be quiet and say nothing, bacause you’re probably wrong. If you speak up you’ll look stupid. Then one day I started speaking up anyway, tired of always be silenced. To my surprise, some people would actually listen. It was such a great feeling I’ve applied courage to many aspects in my life. To me courage is speaking or standing up for yourself or someone else, knowing/thinking that the outcome might not be so great, yet you do it anyway.
