I know that the greatest Hero of the bible is Jesus Christ and that we aren't to elevate any human being to a status of worship, but I think that it's alright to say that there are people in the bible who, as mere humans, inspire us. And I think that many of those people in the bible are never used as illustrations in sermons and never taught about in Sunday School. There are no books written about these people. They are "unsung". Who are your 5 (or less) favorite "unsung" people in the bible? Here's mine: The Centurion soldier - This man's faith amazed Jesus. The dad who desperately wanted his son healed and when Jesus said, "Do you believe?"......The bible said he spoke with tears flowing down his face, "Yes! I believe! And if there is any part of me that would constitute as unbelief, heal me from it." The little unnamed Israelite girl who after being captured and made a slave in Naaman's house, had compassion towards her enemy and instead of laughing at his leprosy and secretly hating him, she wanted God to get him to Elisha so that he could be healed. Leah - The bible said, more than once, that she was hated by her husband simply for having something about her face that was unappealing to him and for not being Rachel. She tried to win his affection by bearing him children. It did not work. After bearing Judah, she finally said, "This time, I will praise the LORD." She took the focus off of being unloved and focused on God. The leper who came back to Jesus and said, "Thank you!" - I believe that Christians would be more joyous and more effective if they were more grateful to God for their salvation and every blessing He has given them.
