Heroes Inspiring Vision

According to Merriam Webster online -
HERO   : a man admired for his achievements and noble qualities : one that shows great courage : an object of extreme admiration and devotion

Who are the heroes around you?  Lately the heroes around me have been children willing to give themselves away to make an impact - a difference - in this vast world.  Very few adults, but multiple children.  Little ones living large. 

Middle schoolers are blogging to challenge peers to live out their faith, Sydney, a ten year old, is selling shirts to feed orphans in Africa and this precious adopted eight year old girl with HIV is authoring a blog that inspires while she gives her money away to an adoption fund!

As we grow up, do we become unwilling to take a risk?  Do we think too much instead of acting on faith?  Do we hold back?  Do we try to control and predict rather than trusting?  As you read my next blog entry, know that I am pondering each of these questions heavily.  What will be our answer to each pointed question?  What is yours?

The wolf will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat, the calf and the lion and the yearling together; and a little child will lead them.   - Isaiah 11:6
