If any one of us live long enough life will hand every person a situation at which time we 'll be utterly helpless. It may be a relational situation, family situation, financial situation , health situation or in Vick's case being allowed a second chance. It's at this moment that our life will be defined. We'll either live in denial or we'll ask God and others for help. This is the point to where God becomes real to most people. I am not saying Vick didn't no God before this happen. I am just saying this is where the saying comes from that, “you don’t know God’s all you need until God’s all you got.”
I think that there are not many people who would say that they are prideful. Most people would say to some degree they are humble. If you haven't been tested in a certain area you really don't no. what Again I find that what most people say about themselves in these certain areas and what they live out in there life don’t match up. I really don't believe we start out in life with the intentional to be prideful, boastful or arrogance it just sneaks up on us. I think one of the greatest form of pride is that we don't want others to call or see our our weakness.
My husband made the following statement: "That black men put a lot of pressure on themselves to hide their own weakness. He said it was because we were taught to be strong and self sufficient. And if you show weakness, people will not accept you or your spouse will not respect you, your children will not follow you." So I ask my husband because God gives His power to a humble heart just how much power do he believe Vick has right now? A lot! if he's allowed the chance to prove it. Watching Vick's life we now can see why God hates pride, it robs Him of a relationship with us and others.
