Imitate, Don't Idolize

Most of us have spiritual heroes, but let's remember to imitate (Hebrews 13:7) and not idolize:
Every cult of personality that emphasizes the distinguished qualities, virtues, and talents of another person, even though these be of an altogether spiritual nature, is worldly and has no place in the Christian community. ~ Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Life Together
