"The second step is preparing our mind for action. As one who wept over his own faintness of heart, the apostle Peter urges us to begin by preparing our minds for action (Matt. 26:69-75; 1 Pet. 1:13). Such preparation comes from a return to biblical truth. In partcular we need to see what the Bible says about the world's true nature and its real needs."- Gary Haugen
