Courage of your convictions

Listen to your critics and learn what you can from them. But don’t let them dissuade you from what you know is best.

A bright and shining vision has value only when you have the courage to follow it. When you know that it is the thing to do, then step up and do it.

Pay attention to what others have to say, without becoming a slave to their opinions of you. Consider differing and diverse perspectives, while keeping the substance of your most deeply held values intact.

Much of the effort of achievement is in keeping yourself focused. Choose to intentionally make that effort, to maintain that focus, and all the rest will more readily fall into place.

Though the world may seem to be against you at times, keep in mind that you are working to make that world a better place. Start to show some progress, and others will soon be buying into your vision.

Remember who you are, where you’ve come from, and the real value of what you have to offer. Then step forward, with renewed courage and commitment, and make it real.

Luke 22:1-6

“Now the Feast of Unleavened Bread, which is called the Passover, was approaching. And the chief priests and the scribes were seeking how they might put Him (Jesus) to death; for they were afraid of the people.”

“And Satan entered into Judas who was called Iscariot, belonging to the number of the twelve.”

“And he (Judas) went away and discussed with the chief priests and officers how he might betray Him to them. And they were glad, and agreed to give him money.”

“And he (Judas) consented, and began seeking a good opportunity to betray Him to them apart from the multitude.” Luke 22:1-6 (NAS)

John 20:26-31

“And after eight days again His disciples were inside, and Thomas with them. Jesus came, the doors having been shut, and stood in their midst, and said, “Peace be with you.”

“Then He said to Thomas, “Reach here your finger, and see My hands; and reach here your hand, and put it into My side; and be not unbelieving, but believing.” Thomas answered and said to Him, “My Lord and my God!”

“Jesus said to him, “Because you have seen Me, have you believed? Blessed are they who did not see, and yet believed.”

“Many other signs therefore Jesus also performed in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; but these have been written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you may have life in His name.” John 20:26-31 (NAS)
