Five Minute Fridays – Hero
Well I sure only have 5 minutes today. Running out to pick up grandson in a few minutes.
The word “hero” means:
a person of distinguished courage or ability, admired for their brave deeds and noble qualities; a person who has heroic qualities or has performed a heroic act and is regarded as a model or ideal.
My hero has to be Jesus. He is the One who instills in us the desire to be more than we can be on our own.
I can name many human heros – those whom I would look up to. When I look at them I see that they are selfless, kind, and loving. I see them doing things that require more than a regular strength.
I found this song by Kirk Franklin called Hero and I love this verse:
Now I can see you I’m no longer ashamed
Your power I feel see our lives have exchanged
Every wrong is erased, Jesus
You are my hero you came and you saved the day
One of the best examples of a human hero to me is Mother Teresa. To me she shows us someone who did not think of herself but always looked for out for the other person. In poor conditions she never complained but pressed on as Paul calls us to do.
Time is up. Five minutes goes quickly. On Monday February 10 I will be joining the Blog Hop again and our topic happens to be “hero”. I hope to expand on my thinking for that post.
Here is the Hero by Kirk Franklin.
Blessings to everyone,
You are my Hero, Jesus. You have come to save every day. (click to tweet)
