As a recovering coward I realized that “Courage Changes Culture”. Throughout the history of the world it’s only been people who had courage to step out and do something that others thought to be impossible, that have changed the course of history. I am reminded of one of my favorite quotes by Winston Churchill: “History will be kind to me, for I intend to write it”. People like Winston Churchill, Martin Luther, Rosa Parks, Dr. King, St. Patrick, and many others knew that one brave act of courage could change culture forever.
One of my favorite books of the Bible is the book of Joshua. It’s about a young leader who was called to help lead millions of people into there destiny. He was following arguably one of the greatest leaders to walk the planet in a man by the name of Moses. Following Moses would be like trying to follow Michael Jordan as the two guard for the Chicago Bulls. Joshua had a huge assignment before him and there were many things God could have said to him, but He emphasized one thing in Joshua 1:9 “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go”.
God knew that in order for Joshua to change culture, he was going to have be courageous. The question I want to ask us is simply this: Are we living a life that changes culture? If not, what do must we do to change? .
