When Muhammad Ali was in his prime as a heavyweight prizefighter, he was on an airplane that was about to take off. When the flight attendant reminded him to fasten his seat belt, he brashly replied, “Superman don’t need no seat belt.” The flight attendant quickly responded, “Superman don’t need no airplane, either!”
Ali sheepishly fastened his seat belt.
Even the man who called himself “The Greatest” had his moments of humility.
The Bible consistently urges us to forgo pride and to adopt a humble attitude. We would do well to take that teaching seriously.
“Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.”—James 4:10
