Psa 16v2-3 – My Heroes

Everyone likes a hero. A person admired for their courage and outstanding achievements. It’s the genre of many popular movies. But outside of movies, we also have heroes, from sports heroes to political heroes to cultural heroes. They are people who, in our eyes, are amazing. Take a moment and think about who you consider to be a modern-day hero. While most of us might come up with people made famous by the media, did you have anyone like this on your list? “I said to the LORD, “You are my Master! Every good thing I have comes from you.” The godly people in the land are my true heroes! I take pleasure in them!” (Psalms 16:2-3). In a world that not only ignores God but is increasingly intolerant of godly people, how many see the godly as true heroes? As God and those who follow God are vilified, mocked, and cancelled by our modern culture, let’s be like the Psalmist and take pleasure in those who put God first regardless of what our modern world does or says. The godly people are my true heroes! Open Bible –
