29 – Bravery

One day, a man named Carl was on his way to work. He had to stop by the bank to get some cash, so he went inside. As he waited in line, he noticed a man who looked suspicious. The man was wearing a hoodie and sunglasses, and he was fidgeting nervously.

Carl’s suspicions were confirmed when the man moved up to the teller and pulled out a gun. He said, “Everyone, stay where you are or I’ll shoot you!”

Carl saw that he was close enough to the robber to take him down. He waited for the man to be distracted by the money, and then he jumped on him, knocking him to the ground. The gun went off, but no one was hurt.

Carl held the robber down until the police arrived. The police cuffed the robber and took him away. Everyone in the bank was grateful to Carl for saving the day.

“It was nothing,” Carl said. “I just did what anyone else would have done.”

Carl’s faith in God gave him the courage to do what was right. He was not afraid of the robber, because he knew that God was with him. Carl’s actions are a reminder that we can all make a difference in the world, no matter how small.

“In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.”

Psalm 56:11
