Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves.” (Philippians‬ ‭2‬:‭3‬ NLT)

Utah State was on their way to taking a 14-0 lead early in the second quarter last night for a possible upset over Oregon in college football. Then the unthinkable happened that changed the game. Utah receiver Kaelin Clay casually dropped the ball a yard before he crossed the goal line! As the Utes celebrated, an Oregon player grabbed the ball and chugged 99 yards down the sideline for a touchdown!

Pride always has a way of biting you when you least need it to. Maybe our life isn’t on display for the nation to watch, but the Lord will eventually allow our pride to catch us. Not that He is mean, but sometimes the only way to find our humble path is to fall on our face!

As you come to church today, come with a humble heart. When God knows that our pride is in check, He begins to lift us up. And if you’re willing, He’ll gently lead you to a right attitude without allowing ESPN to debut your mistakes! You are loved today!
