I'm sure you don't need me to tell you that last night was a pretty bad night for Peyton Manning. In fact it was probably the worst night of his career!
I want you to think about the worst day of your life, how did you feel? How did you treat people that day? Where you pleasant to be around, or did you need to be alone for everyone's safety?
Now read this with those thoughts in mind...
Sunday night after the Super Bowl ended Peyton Manning and opponent Richard Sherman had a run in, this is what Sherman had to say about the exchange.
"When I was walking up to my press conference, well limping up to my press conference and trying to make it up the stairs, somebody taps me on the shoulder and extends their hand and asked am I alright. And my eyes trying to make it out to see who it is, and it's Peyton, fully dressed in his suit. Obviously, really concerned about my well-being,”
How incredible is that? On quit possibly the worst day of Peyton Manning's career, he had the character to show concern for his opponent. How many times have you treated others poorly and blamed it on "having a bad day"? I know I have.
Thank you Peyton Manning for challenging me love others regardless of the kind of day I'm having!
