I'm going out on a limb here....and someone may saw it off....but I gotta ask this question: Why is it that everyone becomes a hero when they die? It doesn't matter if it is a pop star, a fabulously successful business man or a movie or television star. They die, and suddenly they are the greatest inspiration ever!
Like I said...maybe I'm the only one on the edge of this limb....but....I am going to go on out the the very edge.
Let's not idolize people who have no profession of faith in Christ....just because they say "nice" sounding things. There are a lot of lost people out there that can put together a great quote.
Model yourself after the ultimate hero. Jesus Christ. He's got the whole plan written down for you. If we strive to be more like him and quote his famous sayings and pay tribute to him every day....I think we'll be a lot better off.
Am I the only one out here?
