• Hi Guest!

    You may be aware that "big tech" has been aggressively censoring conservatives on Twitter, Facebook, Google, Instagram, YouTube and other social media platforms. This is tyrannical and suppressive towards Christians and conservatives.

    Please share Talk Jesus community on every platform you have to give conservatives an outlet and safe community to be apart of.

Word for Today / ‘Be of good courage, and do it.’

‘Be of good courage, and do it.’

‘Arise, for this matter is your responsibility but we will be with you. Be of good courage, and do it.’ Ezra 10:4 NKJV

You probably haven’t heard of Harlow Curtice because he wasn’t a graduate from a prestigious university; he was a country boy with only a high-school diploma (roughly equivalent to finishing Year 10). But he had big dreams. He started out as a bookkeeper in General Motors and rose to become a company president by the age of thirty-five. By the time he was forty, he was the general manager of General Motors’ esteemed Buick division. He worked his way to the top of his profession with a talent for new ideas and action. He bravely designed new styles and models. And he personally travelled throughout the United States to inspire dealers and instil in them a renewed enthusiasm about their Buick products.

And guess when he did it? In the middle of the Great Depression! Under his leadership, the sale of Buick cars quadrupled; his division became the second biggest moneymaker in General Motors’ history. When he was asked what he attributed his success to, he cited these three things:

(1) He set goals for himself and required the people around him to do likewise.

(2) He took pride in confronting and overcoming obstacles.

(3) He was willing to take risks and do the things that talented but fearful people around him refused to do.

As a result, winning became a habit and a lifestyle. Those three principles are solidly Scriptural and time-tested, and they will lead you to success in whatever you put your hand to. So the word for today is—‘Arise, for this matter is your responsibility… Be of good courage, and do it.’
