Peace family, who are your superheros? Have you ever thought about the impact that they make on you?
I’ve been thinking a lot about super heroes. There have been a lot of superhero movies lately, and not only do I feel like you can tell a lot about a person by his or her favorite superhero of choice, but you can also tell things about them by the kinds of powers that they wish they could have.
What powers would you want to have? The power to fly? The ability to read minds? Super-human strength? To bake the perfect birthday cake? (Ha! I know that last one sounds silly, but to some folks, it really does seem like a super skill!) As for me, I wish I could read super fast, maybe even just touch a book and instantly absorb the knowledge. Wouldn’t that be cool?
It’s not a secret that we will become like the people we admire. It makes me want to examine my life. Are the people, activities, and entertainment that I admire really the direction that I want to go with my life? Do they honor God? Are they worthy of my admiration?
Let’s encourage the good examples in our lives, and remember that God is the ultimate superhero. He has all of the powers, and only he can really save us!
