    And they were naked... oops, sorry, that was the frat toga party.

    the Mariners were afraid... oops, sorry, that was baseball playoffs.

    How's about:

    You shall walk in all the ways which the Lord your God has commanded you

    or

    Be strong and of good courage, fear not, nor be afraid, for the Lord your God, He it is that does go with you, He will not fail you or forsake you.

    or

    For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will be faithful to complete it.

    Daniel 1132:33 " . . but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits. And they that understand among the people shall instruct many."

    Know God
    Be Strong
    Do Great things

    Then repeat the patter in teaching others

    I have preached this more than once!

    Amen. While having to "lift" it from its immediate context, it does make a good challenge for living in an evil age.
