Apart from Jesus, the people in the Bible are no more worthy of being our examples than the people outside the Bible. A person is not worth emulating simply because they had the “privilege” of being a character in Scripture.

There’s nothing special about having a “Christian” or “Biblical” name.

God has surrounded us with relatives, friends and neighbours far more worthy of emulating than most Biblical characters could ever be. So look around. Pay more attention to your fellow church members, not just as peers but also as inspirations.
