1 Peter 5:5


1 Peter 5:5 

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.




Hockey Chat:  On April 10th 1982, the Edmonton Oilers were proud of their 5-0 lead in late in the third period.  Then the LA Kings remained humble and hard working and their efforts lifted the team to an OT victory.


Life Lesson:  The dangerous pride referred to here is the self pride that is shown by a smug better-than-you attitude. A humble attitude is and honorable attribute.  It keeps our thoughts clear and focused.  All things are given to us in Gods time. He will lift us up when the time is right.  When we lift ourselves up, we are setting ourselves up for the fall.
