Are you preparing your children to stand up to the world around them? Of all the values and skills we need to build into our children's hearts, courage is the most important one. It tops faith, integrity, endurance, and self-discipline. The reason it stands above all of these other wonderful qualities is because they are each dependent upon courage in order to thrive. Faith is fine when everything's going right. But what happens when it comes with a huge personal price tag attached? It's only courageous faith that stands in the end. The same goes for integrity. It's courageous integrity that empowers a person to do the right thing when everything around him tells him to take the easy way out. It's courageous endurance and courageous self-discipline that gives our children their best shot at a great and meaningful future. And it's your commitment to making courage an anchor tenant in your child's character that will put you in a league of your own.
