The Daily Nosh – Deuteronomy 20:8
The officers will speak further to the troops and say, “What man is afraid and fainthearted? Let him go back to his house – so he does not weaken his brothers’ heart like his own.’ (TLV) – Deuteronomy 20:8
Nosh: Fear is contagious and disabling. It prevents us from moving forward in life with faith and courage. God’s Word, here and in many other passages, teaches us that one of the secrets to success in this life is to surround yourself with people of faith and courage and leave the fearful behind.
