The Inspiring Steph Curry

Barb Wire

“Obviously, there’s a lot of hoopla and fanfare that follows you wherever you go, but I know where my talent comes from…I know why I play the game, and it’s not to score 30 points a night, but it’s to use the stage I’m on. I’ve been put here for a specific purpose: to be a witness and to share my testimony as I go through it,” Stephen Curry

MVP is what they call him. Humble servant is how he refers to himself. He is the baby faced assassin. Give it up for the most unashamed and unguardable player in the NBA. His name is Steph Curry.

As Christians we are to excel in all that we do. We strive for excellence and give all the praise and glory to God. If we are recognized for our efforts then we know who to thank. Regardless, we rest assured in the knowledge that our Lord and Savior is watching. We will do our duty with a grateful heart.

Tim Tebow they could afford to decry. But some skills are just too good to deny. May Mister Curry continue to amaze in the name of the Most High!

Mainstream culture could use some inspiration. May it truly be divine.

“I remember it like it was yesterday, the day I gave my life to Christ. I was in fourth grade, and I recall hearing and understanding the gospel of Jesus Christ and walking down the aisle to give my life to Him. My parents continued to pour into my faith from that point on, making sure I understood the commitment I’d just made. Starting in middle school I attended Charlotte Christian School, which allowed me to hear the gospel on a daily basis. Looking back, my childhood was filled with the Lord’s presence.” – SC’s testimony.
