Who is your Hero?

What are the differences between the following lists of characters in books?

1. Tom Sawyer, Becky Thatcher, Nancy Drew, Oliver Twist, Huckleberry Finn, Jim Hawkins, and Penrod.
2. Hudson Taylor, George Mueller, Amy Carmichael, Adoniram Judson, David Brainard and, Gladys Aylward

The first list of names are fictional, the second are real people.

The first list are heroes without being Christian.

The second are heroes because they are Christian.

The first list are forever boys or girls. They never grow up.

The second list we have their whole life.

The first hat cannot be, or should not be imitated.

The second list can be and should be imitated.

I encourage you to read biographies of Godly people.

Remember those who rule over you, who have spoken the word of God to you, whose faith follow, considering the outcome of their conduct. Hebrews 13:7
