This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to Wisdom
A Hero – Daily Wisdom
Welcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. We are on Day 1722 of our trek, and it’s time to explore another nugget of wisdom, which includes an inspirational quote along with some wise words from Gramps for today’s trek. Wisdom is the final frontier in gaining true knowledge. We are on a daily trek to create a legacy of wisdom, seek out discernment and insights, and boldly grow where few have chosen to grow before.
Hello, my friend; this is Gramps. Thanks for coming along on today’s trek as we increase wisdom and create a living legacy. Proverbs 16:16 says, “How much better to get wisdom than gold, and sound judgment than silver!” If you apply the words you hear today, over time, it will help you become more healthy, wealthy, and wise as you continue your daily trek of life. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget.
Today’s quote is from Christopher Reeve, and it is, “A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.”
When we think of a hero, it is usually a person who has some extraordinary talents and abilities, but that is not a true hero. Instead, those individuals who perform heroic acts are very ordinary persons who value other people’s lives over their own. Because of their view that all life is precious they are able to act heroically when they face the overwhelming obstacles of life. Their mindset and worldview are such that when there is a call to action, they are mentally and emotionally prepared to take on challenges that might ordinarily frighten them.
They are the people who will jump into a lake to rescue a drowning child. They are willing to approach a burning vehicle to drag out a victim that is trapped. They are the health care workers of the past couple of years who found the strength to persevere and endure despite overwhelming obstacles. They are the grandparents who pray for their children and grandchildren that God would keep, protect, and watch over them each day. Let us look around and honor those everyday heroes. Also, be willing to be a hero yourself.
The godly people in the land are my true heroes! I take pleasure in them!
