Alex Younger, the real-life head of MI6, Britain’s Secret intelligence service, recently said that James Bond would have never made it into the service if he had been a real person. He went on to say, "An intelligence officer in the real MI6 has a high degree of emotional intelligence, values teamwork and always has respect for the law -- unlike Mr Bond."
The fact is, real heroes are rarely flashy and entertaining. This is true in the Christian faith. Our heroes of the faith are often deeply flawed people. They are our heroes because they point us to a greater God. If you seek to live a holy life, you probably won’t be well-known, and it’s better that way. —Jim L. Wilson and James Whitten
