I’m combining two prompts into one today:
If you were a superhero, what would be your hidden superpower? and…
As a superhero, would you rather have extreme strength or extreme speed?
Boy. It’s hard to come up with a superpower. On the days that I am feeling invincible, I’d want a superpower like being able to HEAL someone with a touch. Or provide the perfect analogy to a pressing argument. Or perhaps, to have discernment and help someone see the root of the issue.
And then, I realize, that sounds a lot like Jesus. So I stop lusting after a superpower and go back to being an every day, normal (I think) human being, trying to show love and compassion and make a difference in the world.
Tom Brokaw is quoted as saying, “It’s easy to make a buck. It’s a lot tougher to make a difference.”
I think I’ll keep pursuing making a difference. I’m up for that challenge.
