Part 4 - Ground Zero: When Healthy Legacy Explodes
In our culture today we make much of our celebrities – they are super visible people who have massive followings. But I think you would agree that there is big difference between a hero and a celebrity.
* Celebrities are known for their name being known.
* Heroes – on the other hand – are known for thinking of someone else.
* Celebrities make history through visibility.
* Heroes make history through character qualities.
* Celebrities show how it’s possible for a man to be famous.
* Heroes how its possible for a man to be good.
As time passes, it usually dissolves the legacies of most celebrities. For heroes on the other hand, as time passess, it creates space for people to think about them, and it elevates their value into a positive legacy. The Bible is full of “unsung heroes” who didn’t get the recognition at the time but they are remembered and revered today their as their legacies of being dangerous with goodness exploded over time. History and heaven sing the songs of these unsung heroes – those men who chose to love God and people when no one was looking. Will that be you?
