Who do you admire most?

Admire- To hold in high regard, to esteem, to regard with wonder

I think in our culture today we often regard things (and people) that are worthless. Money, fame, power...

I want to admire people with good character. 

A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.
Prov 22:1

I admire someone who stands up for what they believe in. I admire those who are passionate about those they love. I admire those who will do "hard things" in life.

I admire my husband for stepping into the role of father for a child who was fatherless.

I admire my mother for having raising my sister and I on her own.

I admire my daughter who is extremely shy as I watch her interact with her peers.

I admire the members of my family that have fought for my freedom.

Lord, help me to stay focused on things that are worth heavenly admiration. Things of you and you alone.
