Not feeling very courageous of late, I had the blessing of listening to a Willow Creek Leadership Summit CD from 2003 of Erwin McManus. He was speaking on character, on courage. Here are a few of the things that really made me think:
- Humility (not prestige or power) develops integrity, which, fully formed, begins to unleash in us – courage.
- God’s design for us – a journey of inter-connection to wisdom through perseverance that begins at faithfulness.
- Courage is the absence of one’s self -when a cause becomes so important we think more about that and not how it would affect us. We forget about safety (in terms of living a life that is status quo) and are willing to launch out for this cause.
It’s a very powerful message. I am still absorbing it all. Possibly more to come.
