The Strong Young Man

[Written Especially for Young People]

Boys and young men often make themselves unhappy and become dissatisfied through fear of being ridiculed for doing what they know is right. An understanding of what constitutes real strength corrects this unnecessary fear. A logical presentation of indisputable facts has oftentimes overcome moral cowardice and improved human relationships.

One young man who contended with the fear of being thought weak brought his problem to his Sunday school teacher in these terse words: "Many times when asked or tempted to do things that I know are not right, I'd rather say 'No,' but when I stand my ground I'm thought a weakling. I do not want to be thought of that way. What is the answer?"
