What defines an individual as a hero? A hero does not necessarily have to be an older individual. We should consider the young man Daniel. Faced with pressure to "give up" he continues to praying. Locked up he refuses to "give in" and keeps himself pure. Continuously persecuted Daniel purposed in his heart he would never "give out". We too should be a Daniel to the ones looking at our lives.
HERO - A person of extraordinary character, extreme devotion, and one with exceptional integrity. A person who is able to see past the the ever intriguing present and understand what is right for the future. One who will make decisions based on fact and not popularity. One who will stand consistently without ever giving in.
I'm certainly thankful for the "heros" God has placed in my life. Those individuals who were concerned enough about me and the choices I was making. The preachers who have continued without wavering and were never enticed to "give in".... "give up".... "give out".... It would be impossible to name all of them, but the truth is... they don't seek to be named... just another characteristic of a true HERO.
