In recent years, the film industry has provided an endless array of movies telling stories of our favorite comic book heroes. While our TV sets seem stuck in a cycle of dark news, these films offer us the hope of good over evil; of the ordinary becoming extraordinary. We have a source of similar stories to draw from that offer more than a fictional escape. The Bible profiles people and experiences that can give us hope, plus a model to follow that brings great purpose to our ordinary lives.

It simply means showing bravery in the face of fear; doing what’s right, even when no one else is; never giving up on good; and following the directions God gives us.
