Muhammad Ali

Scripture reading

When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.
–Proverbs 11:2

Thought of the Day

There is an old story about Muhammad Ali, the former heavyweight champion of the world. It took place during the heyday of his boxing fame. He had taken his seat on a plane and as the giant 747 began to taxi to the runway, the flight attendant walked by him checking on things, and noticed that Ali did not have his seatbelt fastened. “Please fasten your seatbelt, sir,“ she requested. Ali looked up at her and replied, “Superman don’t need no seat belt, lady!” Without hesitation she said right back to him, “Superman don’t need no airplane…so buckle up!”
Pretty funny story. The great boxer needed a little lesson in humility that day. I don’t know about you, but I need the same lessons every so often.

Prayer

God above, Help me stay humble and not filled with pride. Amen.
