I was staying in a guesthouse recently and asked the husband and wife owners how they had met. The husband told me as part of the story of their meeting that it had taken him 10 months to ‘pluck up the nerve’ to invite his wife out. This he did by leaving a invitation on her desk at the place where they used to work together. When I think of plucking up the nerve or the courage I think of the word ‘bolster’. As a verb ‘bolster’ means to add support to, and to strengthen. Armies used to bolster their courage before entering battle by drinking a lot. This was called dutch courage. Invite someone today to take a closer look at Christ and his church and bolster your courage today not by dutch courage but by knowing the God is with you.
