Recently a speaker recalled a story of Spurgeon's concerning a class of boys who were having a Scripture lesson on Daniel.

One of the boys was asked to read some verses aloud, and presently he came to verse three in chapter six, which reads....because an excellent spirit was in him" but by mistake the boy rendered it "....because an excellent spine was in him."

It was undoubtedly bad reading, but it was excellent theology, for Daniel was a man of real backbone"—strong, courageous.

"When God speaks, oftentimes His voice will call for an act of courage on our part." - Charles Stanley.

Heb 13:6 (KJV) says: "…The Lord is my helper and I will not fear what man shall do unto me."

Courage is contagious. When a brave man takes a stand, the spines of others are often stiffened." - Billy Graham.
