superbowl coaches

Dungy and Smith are making history as the first black coaches meeting each other in the SuperBowl. That's awesome.

But what is even more exciting is that both men are committed to their faith in Jesus Christ. Both are models of sincerity, humility, integrity and servant leadership. Both are proof that you don't have to play by the world's rules of the angry, manipulative, winner-takes-all form of competition.

As a follower of Christ, I feel a responsibility to pray for people in positions of leadership and influence like this. The pressures and temptations are great. The spotlight can be blinding. I pray God's protection over them to keep them strong and focused on the true meaning of life.

And if the Colts win, that would be OK too...
