"Dare to be faithful"

Loving God usually isn't hard. But being loyal to Him can take courage.

I Started climbing the tall ladder. When I stopped near the top, my hands felt clammy and it was a little hard to breathe. But I knew I'd be all right. I let go of the ladder and fell backward—right into the waiting arms of friends. The fall was done as an exercise in trust for an acting class I was taking. It was a graphic lesson!

One evening I came across a startling statement that reminded me of this experience. It was this one: "Dare to be faithful to God and man" (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany by Mrs. Eddy). I'd never thought of faith in terms of daring before, but the more I thought about the statement, the better it helped me to understand faith.
