"Be on the alert, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. Let all that you do be done with love."
1 Corinthians 16:13-14
Alert: aware, looking around, not down at your shoes
Stand firm: don't waiver, quiver, tremble
Act like men: not wimps!
Be strong: not giving in, worrying, fearful
And to top it all off, do everything in LOVE. Not for your own selfish reasons. Examine your motives, your reactions, your interactions.
And remember, weakness isn't necessarily all bad: "...for when I am weak, then I am strong." (2 Corinthians 10b)
