Heroes, heroines, characters that become bigger than life. Why?
It's not about a flawless person. Practically perfect characters are flawed all over the place like real people, only a little more. They live out poor decisions on the screen (of our mind) until through a series of events, the person we've come to know grows beyond who they were at the beginning of the book.
The man who lived for himself comes to a point of sacrifice. The woman who thinks all is about her beauty realizes the joy of an enriched relationship in sharing her inner beauty.
Too often in our real lives, we hide behind practically perfect facades to portray an impeccable person to the world. But think about the mistakes.
Have you ever made a mistake that took you down a notch? Then it raised up many opportunities to reach out and change a life?
I have. I've belittled myself and then found out how miraculous is God's plan when exactly that mistake helped someone else. I think I'd rather not be perfect. It's in the practically perfect moments that heroism abounds.
Please share how a mistake turned into a practically perfect moment to help someone else.
