People don’t follow titles, they follow courage…

Leaders need courage! [Just look to the tragedy at Penn State this week to see what happens when so called leaders lack the courage to do what is right.]

In the movie Braveheart, William Wallace says, “People don’t follow titles, they follow courage.”

Courage inspires people to sacrifice their time, resources, and even their lives to follow their leader.

We see this principle played out in the life of Joshua. God tells him, “Moses my servant is dead. Therefore, the time has come for you to lead these people…”. It was his time for Joshua to step up and lead. God commands (not suggests or encourages…he commands) Joshua to “be strong and courageous”. This wasn’t the time to sit back and let life happen. Not the time to be weak and indecisive. It was time for Joshua to realize God’s future for His people. It was time to take new territory, defeat enemies, & enter the promised land.

This principle was true for Joshua, it was true for William Wallace, and it is true for us.

We need courage to face challenges & take risks. Courage is necessary for us to challenge the status quo. Courage is required to make decisions and stick to them. Courage enables us to press through discouragement, fight through stress, overcome doubt, & face our fears.
