Principles and Practices - May 27

Conquer Human Respect

I pray God with all my heart to give you as much courage to face the judgements of this world as He has given you to face the enemy on the field of battle.

Is it not a strange folly in a man to have no fear of what may at any moment put him into hell, and yet to be a real coward in face of the ridicule and criticisms of those whom he in his heart despises?
