Happy Father’s Day

Devotion from Courage and Confidence by Walter Moore

Only two letters, but the hardest word of all!

…be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods,

nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up. (Daniel 3:18)

Edward W. Bok reminisced: “I remember when as a boy I asked my father once which , to his mind, was the hardest word in the English language.  Without a moment’s hesitation he answered, “No!” “No?” I echoed in surprised. “Exactly,” he answered, “not in spelling, as I suppose you mean. But you will find as you go along that it is the hardest word in the English language”  I did.  And difficult to say it was at time, as my father had predicted.”

Give us wisdom and courage, O God, always to say “No” to every tempting evil, however winsome, and “Yes” to Thee, however great the cost. Amen.
