Who are your heroes, the people you look to as your role model, whom you want to pattern your life after? How do their lives compare to people in the Bible, to Jesus? The world holds up men and women as examples of success. We are wise to examine their lives in light of Scripture, most importantly, in light of Jesus’ life and teachings. What does your choice of a role model reveal about what your heart values?
Remember your leaders who taught you the word of God. Think of all the good that has come from their lives, and follow the example of their faith.—Hebrews 13:7 NLT
Prayer: Lord, thank You for men and women who model what it looks like to serve and worship You alone. Examine my heart and motives. Transform my perspective on success so that my values align with men and women of faith. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
