For those who remember, boxing legend Muhammad Ali never lacked for bravado. On many occasions, he would say of himself, “I am the greatest!”
Once while flying to a fight, Ali refused to buckle his seatbelt despite being told many times. The flight attendant kept insisting, but Ali said, “Superman don’t need no seatbelt.” Finally, the fast-thinking attendant replied, “Superman don’t need no plane.”
Ali buckled his seatbelt.
Muhammad Ali experienced an attitude adjustment.
For those of us who have given our lives to Christ, the cross offers us a different way of looking at life:
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” (2 Corinthians 5:17).
