STUDY OF MANY HEROES REVEALS ALL OF THEM SHARE FIVE TRAITS OR VALUES:
They are FEARLESS
Was anyone ever more fearless than missionary Mary Slessor?
They are APPLIED
Can we too try to become heroes? Yes, and although history argues persuasively against any but a handful matching their glorious achievements, we can improve ourselves by developing the five values into virtues.
Was anyone ever more applied than explorer David Livingstone?
They are INSTRUCTED
Was anyone ever more instructed than church founder John Wesley?
They are TIRELESS
Was anyone ever more tireless than scientist George Washington Carver?
They are HUMBLE
Was anyone ever more humble than missionary Gladys Aylward?
THE BEST 'ROLE MODELS' FOR THE VARIOUS VALUES COULD BE RESHUFFLED AMONG THE HEROES IN ANY COMBINATION. FOR IN TRUTH, EVERY HERO POSSESSES ALL FIVE VALUES TO A SUPERB DEGREE! NEED MORE PROOF?
