Beneath Batman’s Cape: Finding the Hero in All of Us

For a superhero, Batman’s kinda wimpy (though I wouldn’t say that to his face). After all, he doesn’t lift cars or turn green or fly. Granted, he’s the toughest multi-billionaire out there (sorry, Tony Stark), but would he stand a chance against a fully suited-up Iron Man if the two tangled? Not likely. What truly makes Batman different is his call—his desire to set aside his own wants and needs to help the good people of Gotham City. In many ways, he resembles many of the heroes we read about in the Bible—normal folks who were called by God for a special purpose. There was nothing superhuman about David or Daniel or Peter. But because they were sincere about following God, they wound up doing some pretty extraordinary things.
