danger, into the unknown. They pay dearly for their courage, and they often go years — if ever— without the recognition they deserve.”
Courage, Selflessness, Humility, Patience, Caring.
We lean towards elevating these guys to hero status quickly and justifiably so. They exemplified “Courage, Selflessness, Humility, Patience, Caring”. While we can see them as heroes we could never be we must remember, without Christ and their love for him, they would’ve never been heroes either. These guys had made a shift. They believed what they had learned about Jesus and they chose to live that out. That option exists for each of us today.
Courage, Selflessness, Humility, Patience, Caring… These things are choices. Want courage? Choose to be courageous. Want selflessness? Choose to put others first. Want humility? Be humble. Want patience? Be patient. Want to care? Do I really need to continue?
Boiled down to the basics, a hero is someone who we think we ought to be.
A hero is the best teammate anyone could have.
