Editors' note: To be truly courageous you need to be awake, in the spiritual sense; if you trust in God there is nothing to fear. Somebody may
be able to destroy your body but cannot touch your spirit. Through a change of attitude a weak person can become strong, build himself up.
At times we may be required to demonstrate the courage of our convictions. We can be crafty and evade stating a position, but if the day comes when an
issue involves conscience then we have to stand our ground. There are times when we have to make superhuman efforts but we are never asked to make
these until we are ready. The people with real courage are the ones who perfect themselves.
