Heroes

Who are your heroes in life? Who is it that you put your confidence in? your trust? Athletes become our hero, our confidence. What about movie stars and singers? We all look to them. Many people put so much faith in powerful people that they go out and buy only the clothes that that singer or actor wears. We immortalize humans when that isnt the way it should be Shouldn’t we have our faith and confidence and trust in something much bigger than ourselves, much bigger than that actor who is no better than you. Shouldn’t we put our all into a God who with his very hands fashioned the universe and is holding it in place right now? A God who loves the widows and orphans, the unlovable people of this world. Thats who we should want to emulate our lives after, not some human. Jesus Christ the greatest hero of all

“Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord, I tell myself. I will praise the Lord as long as I live. I will sing praises to my God EVEN with my dying breath. Don’t put your confidence in powerful people; there is no help for you there. When their breathing stops, they return to the earth, and in a moment all their plans come to an end. But happy are those who have the God of Israel as their helper, whose hope is in the Lord their God. He is the one who made heaven and earth, the sea and everthing in them. He is the one who keeps EVERY promise forever, who gives justice to the oppressed and food to the hungry. The Lord frees the prisoners. The Lord opens the eyes of the blind. The Lord lifts the burdens of those bent beneath their loads. The Lord loves the righteous. the Lord protects the foreigners among us. He cares for the orpans and widows, but he frustrates the plans of the wicked. The Lord will reign forever. O Jerusalem your God is king in every generation! Praise the Lord” Psalm 146
