Gospel Principle: Courage and Valor
Many associate courage and valor with knights because of their code of conduct. The knights Code of Conduct extols these virtues, which reinforce that a true knight does what is right regardless of the difficulties or consequences. He exhibits true courage. Joshua was a man, who like the knights was called by God to lead the Israelites. He needed to have courage and do what the Lord wanted him to do.
· What command did the Lord repeat three times in Joshua 1:6–9? Be strong and of a good courage.
· What did the Lord say Joshua would need courage and strength to do? (SeeJoshua 1:7. Only be thou strong and very acourageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: bturn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest cprosper whithersoever thou goest.)
· Point out that although Joshua would need courage to fight many military battles, he would also need moral courage—the courage to do what is right.) What challenges do we face today that require strength and moral courage?
