Topic #34: Greatest Hero

Topic #34

Here’s today’s topic, brought to you by

Who is your greatest hero of all time?

Bonuses: 1) Who is your greatest villain of all time? 2) Who could play your evil-twin in the made for TV version of your life?

I have a whole list of heroes…but the greatest of them all:

Mama Mary, the mother of Jesus.

1.) She said, “yes” to the task of bearing the Son of God in the face of being stoned to death

2.) She trusted that everything would work out according to God’s plan, even though she did not have a “higher” education or reassurance that things would work out smoothly.

3.) She ran off with her Son and her husband to a foreign land to save him from being killed.

4.) She encouraged Him to step up and begin the ministry He was set to do.

5.) She not only witnessed His many miracles, she also witnessed Him giving up His life for those who persecuted Him; and THEN saw Him after He rose from the dead…

As a young lady, I can’t imagine being in her sandals and saying yes to a plan that had no details laid out except for the first step.  To be a mom and watch your only Son grow up and do some amazing things which ended up killing Him in the process, that must have been a pain that goes beyond all telling.

The worst villain of all time: Satan…he’s the father of lies.  Not to mention, he’s really good at that.

As for the last part: whoever gets to play me in the movie would be the best evil-twin because I know that I can be my very best enemy.
