Fortitude

It conquers fear; contains recklessness; checks imprudence. It is the difference between evangelizing and proselytizing, and that blithering on for 25 minutes to an unfortunately captive audience is not an example of the former. It's what stops us from letting our emotions and desires lead us into an ill-conceived, hasty action that could cause embarrassment, anger, irritation or resentment in others.  It's not just having conviction; it's having the guts to act on our convictions AND the wisdom to act on them rightly.

It's what Michael Voris talks about in today's episode of The Vortex.

Fortitude I have. Commonsense may be lacking! :)

I dropped by to let you and other followers know that my Blest Atheist blogspot went down. I replaced it with 100th Lamb (www.emahlou.blogspot.com). I explain why there.
