January 25, 2020 – Courage not compromise

“Let us have the courage to defy the consensus, the courage to stand for principle. Courage, not compromise, brings the smile of God’s approval.”

  1. President Thomas S. Monson, “The Call for Courage”, General Conference, April 2004

The world is compromising everything at a quicker pace than I realized. We are forced to accept and hence become numb to things we once thought revolting. It is difficult to maintain one’s beliefs and principles when society around us crumbling into compromise and acceptance.

Learning to accept the person and not what they are doing and the decisions they are making is flat out hard. It is easy to judge and not so easy to realize that we are judging them in the first place.

My wife knows I don’t like drama. We see drama all around us and I do everything to avoid it. But…am I judging by doing that? Shouldn’t I just show love to the person caught up in the middle of it? How do I separate the love from the drama?

Courage is what is needed. Courage is what I need to work on. Courage, not compromise, brings approval.
