In light of the Broncos' and Seahawks' losses, I have very little I want to say, other than I appreciate this time to remember what really matters and who is truly trustworthy. (For a pretty solid and depressing breakdown of the Broncos' losses, see this article from Woody Paige.)
Yes, Peyton Manning is an awesome quarterback, yet even he can create devastating turnovers. Yes, the Broncos' defense is tremendous (is it still?), yet even it can be embarrassed and humiliated in a huge game.
Can sports be gratifying? Certainly. Where would we do best to put our trust (and our happiness)? "O Lord, I have trusted in thee, and I will trust in thee forever. I will not put my trust in the arm of flesh; for I know that cursed is he that putteth his trust in the arm of flesh. Yea, cursed is he that putteth his trust in man or maketh flesh his arm." 2 Nephi 4:34.
May Peyton Manning's throwing arm retain its strength . . .
