I've been thinking about "courage" today. This train of thought was triggered by Joshua 1:1-9 where God admonishes Joshua four times to be strong and courageous. Then I discovered the following quote.
It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.Alan Cohen
