‘First pride, then the crash. The bigger the ego, the harder the fall.’ Proverbs 16v18

Is this what happened to Lance Armstrong?: Wins the Tour de France cycle race 7 times consecutively after bravely beating cancer. Books are written about his success. He inspires people the world over. And now?

Does pride ever threaten to overtake you? Ask God to search your heart and show you. He knows how destructive pride can be because it puts you in direct opposition to him. ‘God gives grace to the humble but opposes the proud’ (James 4v6)
There is grace for Lance, for me and for you.
