My Thoughts: Michael Vick

Recently, Nike resigned Michael Vick to a very lucrative contract after it ending it with him in 2007. The news was every bit a major news story on Friday.

In case you’re not clear on the facts:

  • Vick was once the highest paid player in the NFL
  • Vick served 18 months in prison and 2 months in home confinement after pleading guilty to a dog fighting operation in 2007
  • Vick signed with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2009
  • Vick started in this year’s NFL Pro Bowl game

Nike statement:

“Michael acknowledges his past mistakes,” said Nike spokesman Derek Kent. “We do not condone those actions, but we support the positive changes he has made to better himself off the field.”

If Not For Your Grace- Israel Houghton

The past few months have been rather trying here at the Robinson camp. Leading a business, writing a book, thoughts about the church plant, etc. Not too mention being a family man (which is my first priority). Sometimes the weight of it all can get overwhelming.

If not for God’s grace where would we be? Shipwrecked. It’s because of his sovereignty that we’re still here….and have the opportunity to accomplish all that he has planned for us to do in life.

The song “If Not For Your Grace” by Israel Houghton has really been in my heart lately. For more info about Israel and the video below, click here.

Listen and be blessed.
