Courage is one of the seven elements of character, and it is essential to lead a fulfilling life. However, for many people, courage does not come easily. Therefore, it’s important to understand how courage, faith, and justice collaborate to bring this element of character to life. In this post, we’ll explore this collaboration and discover how you can develop more courage in your life.

Courage is one of the seven elements of character and is brought to life in collaboration with faith and justice.

Courage and Moral Authority

To have more courage, it’s crucial to understand that it comes from moral authority. That’s why living an honest and just life is vital. In days gone by, such people were called “God-fearing.” In simple terms, a God-fearer is one who considers what God might think over what society might think.

The Importance of God Conscience (GC)

People with GC (God Conscience) believe that our lives matter. They recognize that how we live our days on this earth account for something. Moreover, they haven’t abandoned common sense for political correctness, and they haven’t waved the white flag because they are in the minority. Instead, they study and ponder, remembering that rightness is not always found in the majority.

Standing Up for What is Right

There’s something you may not know. The crowd is looking for everyday people to use common sense and decency. They want people who can stand up for what is right and say aloud what many are thinking. In other words, people are looking for good people to follow.

The Demand for Men and Women with GC

Let me use business terms to break this down. In fact, there is a serious market demand for men and women with GC who will have the courage to lead justly and to call things as they truly are. When something is foolish, they call it foolish. When something is wise, they call it wise. However, they do not allow the crowd to do their thinking for us.

Don’t become so well adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out.
