In society and throughout history there
have been many brave and noble men who have been willing to sacrifice all
for what they believed in. I have great respect for many of these men,

Gandhi, Che Guevara, Benito Juarez, Crazy Horse, George Washington, Thomas
Jefferson, and Patrick Henry. Innumerable women have sacrificed all for
their families and for their people. I have been interested recently to
learn about Harriet Tubman.

the world “a better place” from a human point of view. It is easy to be
immersed in learning about their heroism and the incredible opposition
they faced and their noble goals and achievements and to end up revering
them almost as gods.
And yet, without denying the good some
of them have done, what does the God of the Bible say to us to put these
things into perspective?
