What Do Bold People Do?


Bold people risk their lives to do what is right. The Bible is full of examples of people willing to sacrifice everything and put their lives on the line to obey God or save others. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego replied, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you. If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God whom we serve is able to save us. He will rescue us from your power, Your Majesty. Daniel 3:16-17

Bold people risk their reputation to do what is right.  Now there was a good and righteous man named Joseph. He was a member of the Jewish high council, but he had not agreed with the decision and actions of the other religious leaders. He was from the town of Arimathea in Judea, and he was waiting for the Kingdom of God to come. Luke 23:50-51

Bold people are bold in representing Christ. After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly. Acts 4:31

Follow God’s Advice


Psalms 39:8 Save me from all the wrong things I’ve done. Don’t let foolish people make fun of me.

 Criticism from others comes in two forms constructive and destructive.

It is my experience people who want you to move forward in recovery offer constructive criticism and it is motivated by love. People who really don’t want you in recovery for whatever reason offer destructive criticism often to cover their own faults and failures.

With both forms of criticism, my advice is patience. Recovery is about getting to know God and yourself. Step seven is about changing your character to bring it into line with God’s character.

The best person to listen to when it comes to recovery is God. No matter what criticism you receive from others.
