Who's Your Hero/Heroine?

Post by Sunshine on 17th June 2013, 5:40 pm

I got the idea for this topic from the AIO episode "Stars in Our Eyes."  So I'm curious, do you have a hero or heroine from the past?  Maybe not so much a hero, as just a role model for you?  Are there any specific people in the Bible, whom you look up to, or admire?  How about in the present day?

I've grown to admire David (in the Bible).  He was willing to trust and be faithful to God in everything, big or small.  As a result, we see an amazing life, which God blessed, and through which God brought glory to Himself.

I'm a big fan of Jesus. Very Happy

But besides people in the bible I like Spiderman and Batman a lot. Smile

Honestly I hadn't really given it a whole lot of thought. Is that to say that I don't have heros? No. There are people that I look up to and inspire me, but at the same time I know they are human, and make mistakes like everyone else. When I was younger I collected baseball cards, and I specifically had a lot of Cubs cards. There was one player inparticular, named Joe Girardi that I considered my favorite player. He was a catcher and there was just something about him that caught my eye. For a short while I might have considered him my hero simply because he played baseball well, and I wasn't any good at baseball. Course when I found out that he wasn't on the Cubs anymore, I stopped calling him my favorite player. I now know, like Tamika in Stars in our Eyes, that we should pick our role models carefully not just by what they might look like or what they do for the public, but by their personality and character.  With that said (haha) here's some of my heroes. 

My grandpa has always been one that I look up to. He's loyal to my Grandma, and he's very supportive in the things I set my mind to. He also taught me to play ping pong and to this day it's one of my favorite sports. 

Jason Whittaker isn't necessarily a hero. But he makes this list anyway. I know sometimes he's wreckless, but he also did some mentoring, and mission work along with his secret agent job. While his faith ha room to grow in the newer albums, I love the way he gets along with the kids, and how the kids enjoy being around him.
Along with that, John Whittaker has always been someone I look up to. I realize his wisdom is fictional, but it's something that I sort of strive to work towards. Not necessarily the wisdom of Whit, but the wisdom that comes from knowing the Bible like Whit does. 

Last but certainly not least is Jesus. I'm sure my reasons line up with the reasons o those who have already said him, but it's worth saying. My faith is everything to me. Jesus is my ultimate hero because he's the one I strive to be the most like. He gave up everything so that I could truly live. He's the one that inspires my actions, and words. I'm not perfect to say the least, but he's my inspiration and motivation.

I guess I was kidding when I said that was the last one, because I have one more. The Joseph and his coat of many colors in the old Testament is also my hero. Through everything he went through, he still held strong in his faith and knew that God was with him. It's one of those things that when I'm going through a hard time, I know it wasn't near as bad as what Joseph went through. So I know that God will always be with me no matter the day or circumstance.

There's probably others that might come to mind, but these are the ones that probably stand out the most.

I think Jesus is probably the best hero a guy can have, he literally saved us from death itself. If that's not heroism, I don't know what is.

Fictional characters are awesome heros, too. Very Happy

For my fictional hero, I pick King Peter from Narnia. Just a kid who became king, and didn't fail horribly at it. That's huge.

my hero is duh Jesus.




"Three rings for the Elven-kings under the sky, Seven for the Dwarf-lords in halls of stone,
Nine for mortal men doomed to die, one for the Dark Lord on his dark throne In the land of Mordor where the Shadows lie. One ring to rule them all, one ring to find them, one ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them. In the land of Mordor where the shadow lie."
-J.R.R Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings.
