Pride Fighters

This past Sunday my husband had the opportunity to give a sermon at our church. For anyone that knows Nick...are you surprised it involves boxing gloves? :) I'm extremely proud of Nick for how well he did, for his courage and boldness to speak. I was nervous for him, I can't imagine what he was feeling. I think he did a pretty awesome job for the first time he's ever done it. The holy spirit was there and the message touched a lot of people who have since talked to him. And really tell me...who do you know who doesn't struggle with pride. It comes in so many forms, often hidden in's the root of so many other sins. And as always, when God's speaking...the Word of God keeps after you. Our study for small group included this passage:

The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit;
a broken and contrite heart,
O God, you will not despise.
Psalm 51:17
