Today's Favorite Verse: Deuteronomy 20:3
"And shall say unto them, Hear, O Israel, ye approach this day unto battle against your enemies: let not your hearts faint, fear not, and do not tremble, neither be ye terrified because of them;"
I pondered on how it's not just a battle, as in a war, this is speaking of. During family scripture reading we happened to be talking about hard things each of us were facing or dealing with. How they required courage to do the Lord's will, and as the spirit was directing. The hardest thing is the desire to not offend another, especially now that people are so quick to be offended. We had talked about how the desire to help others in the long run needs to be our focus. With love for their best interest we can do hard things, and place the outcome in the Lord's hands. When we know we have done our best and as the Lord directs, it does bring the courage needed to face the tasks.
