When I toured Israel years ago, an old soldier told the story of Israeli fighters during the 1967 Six-Day War. The soldier-turned-tour guide said courageous troops echoed battle-strong soldiers from the past, yelling “Raq Hazaq” as they fought their foes—meaning, “Be Strong and Courageous!”

Entering my senior years, I remembered those words. I’ve wondered how the Lord might yet call me to be courageous. I’ve asked myself, “How do I show courage?” And often, “How can I be braver?”

There are certainly many ways seniors become timid or draw back into their comfort zone; but I believe there are at least 10 ways we can learn to thrive in being brave as we grow older.
