Why does every movie and tv show seem to have to have the "bad guy"? Comedies have the weird person, Drama's have the villain, RomCom's the totally incompatible guy that does not understand the true feelings of the girl.
These evil party pooper people in our visual stories make the hero look good. But there is more here that runs a little deeper.
While we know deep down that we will never live up to the good people in the movie, we also are utterly convinced we are never has stupid, never as bad, never as immoral as the bad character.
And far too many in this world think that God grades on the curve - meaning that we just have to be less bad than the bad guy. Then we'll be fine. But God calls us to far more than that.
So don't compare yourself to villain, or the hero. But become a true follow of Jesus. Doing what Jesus does.
