Our friends at Athlete’s In Action Cycling have put together a really great set of cycling specific devotions. I will be posting one a week for the next seven weeks, then will need some new content. I invite all of you to submit any thoughts, general concepts or full-blown devotions to me at [email protected] so that we can not only post them for all of our members to read and enjoy, but also to share with AiACycling as a way of saying thanks for this great work.
This week’s installment is on Humility.
Humility: Getting Down to Great Things
By: Dr. Carl Hofmann
“Humility goes before honor.” Proverbs 15:33
A rider wins a breathtaking field sprint in a Grand Tour stage. His heart pounding, adrenalin surging, he’s mobbed by reporters at the finish line. They beg him for his thoughts and feelings. What does he say? Whom does he credit? How does he speak about his closest competitors? His remarks will do more than describe the intensity of competition, successful tactics, and the glory of victory. His comments, both their tone and content, will reveal his character; they will show the stuff he’s made of, deep down.
