When a college football player said his team had to be humble and hungry to win the championship, I took notice.
To be humble.
To be hungry.
That means to stay grounded and trainable as a humble player. Hungry means to long much to win. That's a spiritual hunger for the deepest place within humans.
A rabbi once said that people today don't seem to think God speaks to them because no one seems to bow low enough.
To be open to the Maker. To long for the Creator. And, to hunger for God and the best.
That's a winning combination.
