Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample. (For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)

 

(Philippians 3:17-19 KJV)

 

 

 

 

God has given many examples, both in His word and in our everyday lives, of men to emulate.  We should be thankful for the sacrifices of men like Paul, James, and Peter who lived their lives in such a way that God could use them to have a spiritual impact on us many centuries after they were taken to heaven.

 

 

All too often however, those who get the attention, those who are emulated and those who are admired are those who have no business being heroes to anyone.  Unfortunately, we live in a day and age when society is trying to “keep up with the Kardashians,” the most dysfunctional family in America, while we dismiss the true heroes who quietly go about their business of being examples, while selflessly ministering to others.

 

 

I believe it would do us well to teach our kids about true heroism.  What a blessing it is to be in a church filled with men and women who have faithfully served God, taught their children, and remained faithful to their spouses. 

 

 

Parting thought:

 

You will find the best role models in your church and in the word of God. If we do not point our kids in the right direction, they will find their role models in the world. 



Nothing can touch the Word of God. Not all the powers of earth and hell, men and devils combined, can ever move the Word of God. There it stands, in its own moral glory, in spite of all the assaults of the enemy, from age to age. 'For ever, O Lord, Thy Word is settled in heaven.'“ ~C.H. Mackintosh
