No man amounts to much until all his faculties have been challenged...
"We have been forewarned that an enemy relentlessly threatens us, an enemy who is the very embodiment of rash boldness, of military prowess, of crafty wiles, of untiring zeal and haste, of every conceivable weapon and of skill in the science of warfare. We must, then, bend our every effort to this goal: that we should not let ourselves be overwhelmed by carelessness or faintheartedness, but, on the contrary, with courage rekindled stand our ground in combat."
- John Calvin -
Courage is defined a few different ways in the Old and New Testaments. In Hebrew it is defined as; "to show oneself strong." In the Greek, courage is described as; "good cheer, daring, boldness, confidence."
