True Heroes

On the movie screen we see superheroes in capes. On TV we see winning quarterbacks, rock stars and famous movie stars. The world sees these people as heroes.

But God’s heroes are different. God’s definition of a hero is not someone who is the most popular or has the most Facebook likes and friends on Twitter. God’s definition of a hero is someone who trusts and obeys Him.

Our Bible verses today list some of God’s true heroes. Some of these people “had to wander in deserts and mountains, living in caves and holes in the ground” (verse 38b). These people were persecuted and killed because of their faith in God. They were not like heroes we see on TV and in movies today.

You can be a true hero, too. You don’t have to be extraordinary — you just have to trust God and obey Him.
