Instant Heroes

A tour group once visited a picturesque village. As they walked by an old man sitting by a fence, one of the tourists asked in a very patronizing way, “Were any great men born in this village?”

The old man replied, “Nope, only babies.”

The flippant question had brought a profound answer. There are no instant heroes—whether in this world or in the kingdom of God. Growth takes time, and spiritual leadership must be earned.

“They must first be tested; and then if there is nothing against them, let them serve as deacons.”—1 Timothy 3:10.
