Spider-man is one of my favorite superheroes — a regular guy with an unexpected and ginormous change in his life tries to figure out how to make the best of it. He’s a good guy, although not perfect. He makes mistakes but mostly he’s trying to figure out how to use his gifts in the best way, how to help other people, and he’s also inclined to just enjoy his gifts. Swinging through the city must be fun!
There is a lot to be learned from Spider-man. We can take some of his lessons and apply them to our own lives, both in helping ourselves and in using our gifts to help others.
