His words sting like a bee! “I’ve wrestled with alligators; I’ve tussled with a whale; I done handcuffed lightning and thrown thunder in jail….I murdered a rock, injured a stone, hospitalized a brick… I make medicine sick.” (Muhammad Ali). Ali’s greatness went beyond beyond the boxing ring. His legacy also includes his courage of convictions, his life of service, and his empowerment of others to fight for a cause (cf. 2 Timothy 4:7). Hear some of his words: “Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion.” “It isn’t the mountains ahead that wear you down. It’s the pebble in your shoe.” “In a competition of love we’ll all share in the victory, no matter who comes first.” Do you want to be a champion in your sphere? Hear him: “The best way to make your dreams come true is to wake up.” And, should you suffer defeat in life, “the only thing is to do it right.”—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
