Years ago, heroes were people who had a strong faith in God and who fought for their country. These heroes were willing to sacrifice their lives for other people.
Recently I have noticed that most heroes today are movie celebrities or sports stars. Many of these people are proud of the sinful things they do. They make sin seem glamorous and exciting.
Our Bible Reading today describes some people who were considered heroes of that time. These people were sinful and ignored God’s laws. “Look at these people! They say good is bad and bad is good. They think light is dark and dark is light. They think sour is sweet and sweet is sour” (verse 20).
God never changes. He never thinks sinning is okay. Instead, God honors people who are humble and obedient servants.
Who are your heroes today? Make sure that your heroes are people who follow and serve God.
