The Only Perfect Hero

When I think of heroes, especially around Memorial Day weekend, my mind immediately goes to the men and women of our military, those who are willing to risk their lives for others. About a year ago, I made a music video for the song "My Hero" in which I meant to honor such people. 

Now, as I've reflected another year on heroes I want to also bring it down to another level. Many of us have not chosen a job that puts us in harms way, but that doesn't mean we can't also act heroically. A hero or heroine is defined as a person of distinguished courage or ability, admired for his or her brave deeds and noble qualities.

Those of you who have watched my video know that the song "My Hero" is written about Jesus. He is the only perfect hero. He acted with perfectly distinguished courage and ability to bravely and nobly give up His perfect life for you and me. You and me, whose lives are anything but perfect. Wow! That whole concept is still hard for me to fathom!

Therefore, we can all be heroes whenever we show courage or nobility in the way He modeled for us. That means you having the courage to share your faith with a friend, or you having the nobility to not participate in gossip, or you having the courage to forgive someone who's hurt you, or... (you fill in the blank).

How can you be a hero to someone today?
