Heroes: Abraham Lincoln

Let us have faith that right makes might; and, let us to the end dare to do our duty. -- Abraham Lincoln

From his humble beginning, Lincoln was taught to do what is right.
He knew how to work.
He learned there was honor in working, providing for family.

He was a tall, strong man. He worked with an axe, wrestled for fun.

He buried three sons before they were men.

Lincoln struggled with deep depression, yet he was known to tell stories and jokes to entertain others.

Lincoln saw that people were oppressed by the greed of others, and set out to make it right.

He dared to do his duty.

He dared to incur man's wrath to experience God's pleasure.

Abraham Lincoln walked with angels.

So you also, when you have done everything you were told to do, should say, "We are unworthy servants; we have only done our duty. Luke 17:10
