Bold know-how and action can be learned! Just as we practice the piano or a part for a play, regular practice in boldness gives us the strength to speak when we feel hindered or the right steps to take when we would like to hold back. We not only can learn to be bold but also to speak and act in ways that offer a contrast to the noise of the “godless chatter” that occurs in word and deed around us.
Read 1 Peter 1:13 and Hebrews 10:24–25. These passages remind us that as women of faith, we are called to bold action. They illustrate that boldness takes practice to find its right rhythm in each of us, to develop its full strength and potential. Bold action and advocacy may take different forms, but all are in service to the benefit of the whole (community, world, family, etc.)
How would you finish this sentence? “Bold advocacy is . . . .” Do you consider yourself bold in advocacy? Why or why not?
