Americans love the underdog. We love it when a smaller, lesser ranked team upsets a bigger, higher ranked team. The underdog celebrates after an upset victory. The loser tries to slip away and hide.
We don't love being upset in our personal life. No one wants to be humbled. Jesus tells us that we should be humble, not think more of ourselves than others. Humility, not pride, is a Christian virtue. Humility puts others first. Pride says I can make it on my own. Humility says I need God's help, love and forgiveness. It is better to be humble nd win with Christ, not humbled and lose on our own.
