Today is National Spider Man Day. Here are some fun facts: Spider Man was the first teenage superhero who wasn’t just a sidekick. In the comics, he joined the Fantastic Four after the Human Torch died, also, his parents were spies and died in a plane crash–that’s why he lived with Uncle Ben and Aunt May.
I’ve posted before that Spider Man is one of the best superhero examples. The newest versions with Tom Holland really show him as a young teenager, learning the ropes, making mistakes and having to learn. If you think about being positive, Spider Man is a great example–he learns from mistakes and doesn’t get too sad about them, he is confident that he will succeed in challenges. And he knows it’s not because he’s the fastest, strongest–he just goes out and does his best and gives 100%. That’s all any of us can do, right?
In all the work you are given, do the best you can. Work as though you are working for the Lord, not any earthly master.
Colossians 3:23 (ERV)
Dear Lord, Forgive me for when I hold back and I don’t try my hardest. Help me to do better tomorrow, and to learn how to give 100%, using all the talents you have given me, whether it’s encouraging others, being kind, or playing on a team. Amen.
