What is courage? And what is the difference between courage & downright reckless stupidity masking as courage?
It may be a very thin line. Only wise men know where to put their feet when it's necessary. Open mouth when it's wise & needed. Close it when not. (Too much noises already in the world. Do we need more distractions?)
The world loved status quo, even when it's bad for their own good. When challenged by the prophets, defense mode turned on. Kill the prophets! Only after the prophets dead then they realize that changes need to be made. Thus even though everyone kinda sense that something really need to be done, they keep quiet to save their own lives.
Why was Jesus rejected by his hometown? Because he was a humble carpenter, not exactly the glorified imagination of a savior should be.
Why would we reject some leaders? Because we tend to love the dramatized version of leaders, especially the charisma part.
Heed this: great leaders are the one who produce generations of great leaders to continue the vision. Companies & organizations often failed because when the charismatic leader left, they forgot the original vision & purpose.
