Danielle Strickland loves Jesus and loves people. She is the author of 5 books. And she is also an Officer at the Salvation Army.

In the movie Hercules, one of Hercules’ men covered a bloody wound and told him to never, ever let them see you bleed.

Yet look at the most courageous, valiant man ever: Jesus. He hung on a cross and let the world see the Him bleed. He left the splendor of Heaven to come to earth.

Jesus was the anti-Hercules. The Hercules myth is the anti-Jesus. Jesus is the definition of courage.

We spend our lives trying to avoid our own humanity. We pick up swords and pretend to be great.
