[Written Especially for Young People]

On pages 28 and 29 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mrs. Eddy presents a challenge to every Christian Scientist, and at the same time offers a vital, character-building, profit-giving purpose. She says: "There is too much animal courage in society and not sufficient moral courage. Christians must take up arms against error at home and abroad. They must grapple with sin in themselves and in others, and continue this warfare until they have finished their course. If they keep the faith, they will have the crown of rejoicing."

Quite naturally all, including young people, are desirous of possessing the important virtue of courage. This being true, it is helpful to read the recorded history of some who have possessed it. Abraham, Joseph, Moses, David, Daniel, Peter, Paul, and others attained it to such a degree that the ages have honored them. We see the reason when we realize that each of these possessed moral courage to do right in the face of temptation, opposition, censure, and even persecution.
