Witnesses

Surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses

This passage from Hebrews 12:1, reminds me of a saying of Megan McKenna, a friend of mine, “We are by known by the company we keep and the stories we tell.”

Who where those who accompany us in our daily lives? Not just our friends,  family, no co-workers, but  those persons who inspire us as well as though we spend time with? For example, do we spend time with the poor, marginalized, or only with people with influence or money?

And who are our heroes? Those who have made it big in the world, or those who by their faith and loving service have shown us signs of the Reign of God?
