Having thus chosen our course… Abraham Lincoln Quote

“Having this chosen our course, without guile and with pure purpose, let us renew our trust in God, and go forward without fear and with manly hearts.” – Abraham Lincoln

My Pondering

What great advice and example Lincoln led.

Yes, we humans choose our strategy and tactics. Even no choice is a choice of sorts, though often a poor one. Yes!

We can gather the importance of purity of heart and doing things for a noble purpose from this quote and let’s never forget the importance of purpose. Yes, PURPOSE!

To accomplish anything of worth, we must go forward without fear (not real caution from imminent recklessness that would be foolish in lieu of present danger but false fear). With that said, our enemy plants the seeds of doubt and false fear. To this end, we must overcome with courage. Yes, manly COURAGE!

When we have the best intensions to do good and what is right by God, He gets behind it and then we should be content with whatever the outcome because God is Boss! Yes, BOSS!
