STOP AND THINK – True heroism…is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost but the urge to serve others at whatever cost. (Arthur Ashe, late No. 1 professional tennis player)

Courage may be the primary characteristic of a hero, but another admirable trait might be selflessness. The war hero accepts the risk of injury or death to protect or save someone else. The same may be true of public or private citizens. But it doesn’t take a life-threatening danger to create a hero. Anyone serving others at personal cost to himself is a hero.

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others (1 Peter 4:10).
