Lessons from the World Cup - part 2

Have you noticed that there are a number of arrogant coaches and players at the World Cup? I always feel it is stupid to speak out before a game, as this leaves you open for all kinds of comments, if you fail to win. This has happened a few times already. Perhaps this is why humility is such an endearing character trait, but which we see so seldom.

All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because,
"God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble." Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. - 1 Peter 5:5-7

PROVERBS 11:2 (NKJ)- "When pride comes, then comes shame; but with the humble is wisdom."

Living in Grace,
