Who is your Hero?
My son’s soccer coach knew to motivate his children, he had to use their heroes. Sadly, he didn’t ask them if dad or mom or grandma was their hero. He knew that for many children, their hero is a fake comic character.
We need real heroes. The Bible has them, but they aren’t as squeaky-clean as you’d imagine (or hope!)
Maybe that’s the point. God makes heroes out of horrible people, like us.
