A Different Sort of Courage

Common wisdom: Courage is assertion in the face of risk.

But sometimes, courage requires us to shut up when we disagree, let others express themselves without interruption, and still others to carry the burden of my debate.  To trust that truth may lie outside my own consciousness, that it will only be revealed by others is to trust in the worthiness of opponents, friends and strangers.

The courage of humility is to wait, to hope, to listen.

The fruit of Courageous Humility is Uncommon Wisdom.

One thought on “A Different Sort of Courage

  1. Over the years all of us have learned a lot from others.
    Even if a person has been a hermit.
    We learn from books people have written, television, conversations with one another
    Some people have been put in our path to help us find the answers.
    What a gift people can be.
