Growing up in the ’80s meant that G.I. Joe was required to watch TV viewing. The Joes were some real American heroes and to this day I still live by many of the life lessons I learned in the “Now you know” section of each episode.
Likewise, Gideon is one of my favorite heroes from the Bible.
I could always relate to Gideon wanting to be “sho’nuff” sure that what he was hearing was from God.
However, even after knowing his new title of “valiant warrior” was from God, it was only half the battle.
If you are not familiar with Gideon’s story, you can read it in Judges 6-8.
Anyway, this straightforward design is a mash-up of two of my favorite warrior heroes.
