Ever Fall on Your Face Like Kurt Warner?

Chris —  July 11, 2009

image In 1999, NFL quarterback Kurt Warner came out of nowhere (Iowa actually!) to star in the NFL.  Warner shared that when he first made it in the NFL he was watching television in a workout facility while running on a treadmill and readily admits that seeing his face on television was an exciting moment. He had wanted to make it in the NFL.  Television time signaled his arrival.

But, Warner said that after watching himself for a few moments on television, he began to look around the workout room to see if anyone else noticed that he was on the television.  In looking around, he stepped on the side of the treadmill and fell in front of everyone.

You can apply this one on your own.

Proverbs 16:18, Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall. Or, at the very least – – pride goes before tumbling off the tread mill.

  1. This is a really great story. I love the honesty. There is a tendency in all of us to get puffed up and take ourselves too seriously…but praise God for “Humble Pie”!

  2. I absolutely LOVE this. I wish I could say that I can’t apply it to one of my own, but I can think of several pride tumblings. *sigh*

  3. Great illustration that I may be able to use soon. Thanks, brother!
