Tubby and Jerry

Today as I looked at the Sports Page, I saw that the Louisville men's basketball team will face Minnesota on Saturday. The funny thing is that I used to live in Minnesota and now Tubby Smith, former Kentucky coach, coaches the Golden Gophers of MN. Suprisingly, they are 9-0 heading into this game with (7-1) Louisville, so it should be a good game. But here's the quote from Tubby that made me think. He said, "I tell our guys all the time, 'Your never as good as you think you are ... and your never as bad as you think you are."

Quite true. Tubby is no theologian, but his words reminded me of another quote by a quy named Jerry (Bridges) who said, "Your worst days are never so bad that you are beyond the reach of God's grace. And your best days are never so good that you are beyond the need of God's grace."

May Tubby and Jerry's words humble us today and remind us of the gospel.
