One more story about courage, this time from an eight-year-old child:
"A lot of people in my class were taking the Lord's name in vain. During a class meeting, I asked everyone to stop doing that. It took a lot of courage for me to do that. Some people still take the Lord's name in vain, but I know the Lord is happy with me."
Once again, I am touched by the courage and faith of a child. Imagine the strength it took for this little girl to stand up to her friends and classmates, to say, in effect, "This isn't right. Using the Lord's name that way is wrong."
Joy for today: learning from the example of a child.
