I hate Dallas. I mean hate. Ever since Jerry Jones fired Tom Landry back in the day, I’ve hated the Dallas Cowboys. I mean hate. Landry WAS Dallas, and I loved Roger Staubach and Golden Richards and the “Doomsday” Defense. But Landry was unceremoniously released by the haughty and high minded, hubristic and narcissistic, egocentric and egoistic owner Jerry “it’s all about me” Jones. But enough about him, even though “him” impacts and influences the entire team, I’d rather not focus on him. But to be sure a little leaven leavens the whole lump (Galatians 5:9).
So, if you hate Dallas and you know it, say AMEN! All those of you out there that can’t stand and can’t stomach Dallas, join in tonight and wish Carson Wentz and my Philadelphia Eagles well. We’re going into Big “D” with nothing to lose and everything to gain. It’s a big, mid-season matchup between NFC East Division rivals and it will have far reaching implication for the playoffs.
So, if you hate Dallas, hit me up and hit me back!
Seriously though, arrogance isn’t just found on this Dallas Cowboys team, it’s endemic and systemic across the board and throughout the span of sports. God hates a proud look. And “pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall” (Proverbs 16:18). So, I’m just saying that if you team or your favorite player is prideful and pompous and pretentious and ostentatious, pray for humility. Because they’re going to need it.
There are only seven things that God hates, and pride is at the top of the list.
These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
Proverbs 6:16-19, KJV
