A hero sees what everyone sees, but is not content to do what everyone does. A hero doesn’t let his or her fear stand in the way of saving the day. One of the things we most admire about heroes is their willingness to sacrifice on behalf of others. But that’s also one of the biggest things that gets in the way of us seizing opportunities to be heroes.

“Faster than a speeding bullet. More powerful than a locomotive. Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound. It’s Superman!” A hero sees what everyone sees, but is not content to do what everyone does. A hero saves the day. Even though that may sound lofty and unattainable, hero status isaccessible to all of us. But just like Superman is vulnerable to Kryptonite, there’s a common weakness we must overcome if we’re going to be heroes.

A hero saves the day. If you believe Hollywood, a hero saves the planet. That makes heroism seem inaccessible to most of us. But with a single question, Jesus made hero status available to us all. He also took away our excuses for not accessing our heroic potential.

Faster than an speeding bullet! More powerful than a locomotive! There’s something about hero blockbusters in the summertime. We can’t get enough of them. Saving the world and rescuing the weak resonates with us. But what does it look like to be a hero in real life? Maybe we need a new definition of what it means to be a hero.

Inadequacy whispers into every quiet moment of the soul. We think, “I don’t have what it takes.” For so many, inadequacy drives the pursuit of power, prestige, and possessions. If we never deal directly with our inadequacy, the white noise will keep us dissatisfied.

Life is full of noise. It’s everywhere, all the time. Sometimes we just want to escape, to control the noise by drowning it out with other distractions. But too often, the noise you control is masking the noise that is controlling you. If you’re willing to turn down the white noise, you might be surprised what you’ll hear

We only have so much time with our kids before they move out. Only 936 weeks. Only a few phases before they are out on their own. Are we making investments that will set our children up for success in the future?

Sometimes you know what’s coming next—graduation, wedding, new baby, new job, retirement. But there’s no correlation between knowing what’s next and being prepared for what’s next. So, how do you prepare for the next season when you can't see what’s coming?

We’re all headed somewhere. We’re all moving toward a new season. And none of us has been where we’re going. Yet it’s up to us to figure out what we need to pack in our bags so that we’re prepared for that coming season. But how can you know what you’ll need when the coming season is a mystery? How can you know what you don’t know

We’re all headed somewhere. Arriving at our new destinations requires change. For most of us, change creates stress. Just like when we travel on a boat, plane, or in a car, traveling through life can give us motion sickness. We’re knocked off balance. The ground beneath our feet doesn’t feel solid. So how do you prepare for what’s next when the anxiety of transition has you fighting motion sickness?
