“Be brave.” We’ve all heard it, but why is it so challenging and difficult? Perhaps it’s because we tend to believe that being brave is a quality to develop or possess.
Being brave, like courage, is a decision to act at the moment it is needed.
Most leaders do not consider themselves to possess the quality of bravery. Rather, in those moments when they needed to be brave, they demonstrated it.
Interestingly enough, many who claim to be brave fail to demonstrate what is needed when the moment arises. The church must have leaders who recognize the moment it is needed and act bravely now.
