Be Bold

Are you bold? For many people, I believe they don’t consider themselves as being bold. You hear phrases such as I don’t need to be the leader, or I am a quiet person. But that is not the opposite of bold.

First the definition of bold has to do with being courageous. It also means being imaginative. And it does not mean being bold all the time is the desired outcome. There are times to be bold.

For example, being creative and imaginative when your children have been home from school five of eight days, and they are bored. Bold can also be choosing a new restaurant for date night. If you think about it for a minute, you have done many bold things in your lifetime. Maybe they were not all at the same intensity but for you it was stepping out and being bold in your way.

Ahaz was not bold. Mary was bold when she said let it be done to me according to your word. Look what happened. God became flesh. Could anything be more improbable than that? Be bold. Listen to God. Trust in Him.

May the Lord bless you in the name of the Father and if the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen
