Jeremiah 22:16 He gave justice and help to the poor and needy, and everything went well for him. Isn’t that what it means to know me?” says the lord .
I am happy that the definition of a hero has not been watered down. Every Batman, Spiderman and Superman remake is still a blockbuster! Today the same as 2000+ years ago, what it means to be a hero is still the same:
Give justice and help the poor and needy.
We don’t need superhuman strength, x-ray vision or an invisible jet.
Being one who fights for justice can be very daunting. Political corruption, violence, gangs, apathy and many other things are your foes. But it burns inside of you, the desire to make things right for those who cannot fight for themselves.
About a year ago, I wrote this down in my journal: “I WANT TO BE A FORCE OF NATURE , (empowered by the Holy Spirit)”
And that weekend, I saw a video at my church about a woman in my church who has made it her life mission to rescue and defend those in the sex trade and human trafficking. And in that video, I saw force of nature. And I understood, that I can be a modern day hero.
