Where Are The Giant Slayers?

Since childhood I have enjoyed hearing stories of ordinary people triumph and do spectacular things.
Such interests, for many of us is not only limited to our childhood or youthful years, there is something that interests the human nature about people who do things or achieve things beyond their age,looks or limitations placed on them.
For me as a person, I like inspiring stories and I always do my best to keep myself inspired.
The Bible has many interesting and inspiring stories, there are also many books-biographies and autobiographies that inspire. There are good films that inspire to.
The movie Jack the GiantSlayer inspired and adapted from the popular kiddies story Jack and the Beanstock is good entertainment. It's inspiring to, that a young man overcame all the odds that came his way. A real hero.
The world is in need of heros today.
We live in a world where heros have come and heros have gone, because people come and people go.
Mahatma Ghandi of blessed memory was a hero to his people and many people in the world at large.
The prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him) is regarded as a hero and a prophet to those of the Islamic faith.
Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam (NOI) is a father, a hero and a role model to many black men and muslim brothers. President Barack Obama is a political hero and role model to many.
Heroes are not necessarily people who are perfect or without flaws, they make mistakes, do wrong things and fall short, at times in many areas.
But there is something all heros have in common. Every hero has overcome odds, scaled hurdles and inspired many people, a few people or someone. That amount of people you have inspired, determines the influence and popularity of your heroic reputation.
There are and will always be odds, hurdles, challenges and difficulties to over come in the world today. So you can become a hero to! At least to someone! You are somebody's hero!
David became a national hero after overcoming Goliath.
Goliath was a giant. Modern day giants today are the daily and global challenges of life we have to face on the earth.
So the world needs giant slayers. Where are they, where are those who will make a difference, those who once and for all will go where others fear to go and tackle what others fear to tackle to the glory of God?
They are the ones who will become giant slayers in this day and age. Being a hero, a giant slayer has innumerable benefits.
You can rise up and be counted one of them.
