Coach Landry sent in every play. He told Roger when to pass, when to run and only in emergency situations could he change the play (and he had better be right!).
Even though Roger considered coach Landry to have a "genius mind" when it came to football strategy, pride said that he should be able to run his own team.
Roger later said, "I faced up to the issue of obedience. Once I learned to obey there was harmony, fulfillment, and victory."
The point of the story is simple.
And that is in our relationship with God it requires full submission and obedience.
If God is convicting you to do something or to get rid of sins or habits...just do it.
Like in our story, once you learned to obey that's the only time you'll experience harmony, fulfillment, and victory in your life.
