Unlikely Heroes

A heavenly light shines down on an open Bible
Then the Lord raised up judges, who saved them out of the hands of these raiders.—Judges 2:16 (NIV)
The Bible is filled with unlikely heroes. Often God uses less-than-perfect people to inspire us. Ruth teaches loyalty. Noah teaches trust. Paul teaches perseverance. When you think that a goal is out of reach, look to the Bible and the many examples of people living lives of heroic faith.

Today's Prayer:

Heavenly Father, release the hero within me.
