Warrior Few

I am reading the book, Leadership and Training for the Fight, by MSG Paul R. Howe (US Army Retired), and I am about half way through it.

I came upon this quote, and I wanted to share it with you.

“Out of every 100 men, ten shouldn’t even be there,
Eighty are just targets,
Nine are the real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, for they make the battle.
Ah, but the one,
One is a warrior,
And he will bring the others back.”
Hericletus, circa 500 BC

There is some confusion over the author, but the words are clear.  Consider them in light of what we see in Christianity in our times.
