It Takes Courage

Interestingly, Yen Yi shared a poem with us when she preached on personal holiness from 1 Peter in our Homiletics class ....thanks for sharing w us sis!

So, m plucking this from her sharing :

It takes courage
To refrain from gossip

When others delight in it
To stand up for the absent person
Who is being abuse.

It takes courage
To live honestly

Within your means
And not dishonestly

On the means of others

It takes courage

To be a REAL an or a TRUE woman
To hold fast to your ideals
When it causes you
To be looked upon

As strange and peculiar

It takes courage
To be talked about

And remain silent
When a word would justify you
In the eyes of others
But which you dare not speak
Because it would injure another

It takes courage
To refuse to do something

That is wrong

Although everyone else
May be doing it

With attitude as carefree
As a summer song

It takes courage
To live according

To your own convictions
To deny yourself

What you cannot afford
To love your neighbor
As yourself

It takes courage

to be holy for God
