"...if anyone makes the assistance of grace depend on the humility or obedience of man and does not agree that it is a gift of grace itself that we are obedient and humble, he contradicts the Apostle who says, "What have you that you did not receive?" (1 Cor. 4:7), and, "But by the grace of God I am what I am" (1 Cor. 15:10). (Council of Orange: Canon 6)

    Let him who thinks he has made a save take heed lest... well, take a look

    In a tense match between Maghreb Fez and FAR Rabat to decide who reaches the quarterfinals of Morocco's Coupe du Trone, they had to go to a penalty shootout to decide a winner.

    The Bible says, "Let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall." Application for goalkeepers: make sure you actually have saved the ball before celebrating victory in a penalty shoot out. FAR goalkeeper Khalid Askri thought he came up with a big stop and ... the rest, as we say, is history. His team ended up losing the shootout 7-6.
