Discord – The Rodgers McCarthy Saga
"A false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.” Proverbs 6:19
Regardless of Sunday's loss to the Arizona Cardinals, tension had been building for weeks between two very strong-willed and driven men. Competitors at heart, they eventually turned to compete with each other rather than their opponents on the field. Aaron Rodgers is undoubtedly one of the best quarterbacks in the National Football League. Mike McCarthy is a head coach ranked 24th among all-time coaches has served in only one head coaching role delivering 4 NFC playoff appearances and 1 Super Bowl Championship. These are not two shoddy men. They're hardworking, driven men that allowed competition, philosophy, strategy, and unresolved issues to "sow discord among brothers." And notice what inflames this discord - "a false witness who breathes out lies." In the weeks to come expect to learn more as this saga unfolds. Listen carefully as reporters, players, fans, and owners attempt to uncover the truth to reveal the drama of the lies or lay waste to the discord.
DO THIS: Overcome the drama of discord with the truth.
PRAYER: God, I have sown it. Forgive me for sowing discord. May I seek the truth and may I be willing to hear the truth.
