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?"
"Well, let us consider Jesus of Nazareth," replied the teacher. "He stilled the tempest, walked on the water, drove the money-changers from the temple. He healed the sick and raised the dead. He faced Pilate fearlessly. He refused to consent to death, and resurrected himself. None other has shown such mighty power, strength, and ability, such courage, as did this man of Galilee. People who did not understand the truth he taught ridiculed him, persecuted him. But he went bravely forward, doing what he knew was right, himself heeding the counsel he gave to his followers, 'Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.' Do you know a stronger young man than Jesus?"
