The Golden State Warriors just won their 5th NBA Championship, setting tons of amazing new records in the process. One of their star guards, Steph Curry, recently revealed in an interview one of the things that binds them together as a team: regular Bible studies.

“We have a group chat. We call it the discipleship group,” Curry explained in an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network, “where we share Bible verses every single day and kind of do a Bible study through text message.

“Every game day,”  he continued, “we probably have ten, eleven guys show up for the 30-minute Bible study, prayer service, daily encouragement — that’s the biggest thing.”

He also explained how he tries to live his Christian faith in his daily life:

“That’s the hardest part. How crazy society is and the pace of our life right now, you have to be able to continue to get fed every single day because there are distractions left and right. Find ways to impact people with how you walk, whether you say anything or not, that they can see something that’s different about you, how you carry yourself, that’s a follower of Jesus.”

Curry has been public about his Christian faith for years. In his MVP acceptance speech in 2016, he said, “People should know who I represent and why I am who I am, and that’s because of my Lord and Savior. […] I can’t say it enough how important my faith is to how I play the game and who I am. I’m just blessed, I’m thankful for where I am.”

On his branded shoes by Under Armour, the Curry One, you can find printed on the tongue the text “4:13.” When asked in a press conference what it meant, he explained it was a reference to Philippians 4.13: “It says ‘I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.’ It’s also my mantra, how I get up for games and why I play the way I do.”

  15. Komppaan pitkälti edellisiä kommentoijia -jos kerta autottakin pärjää niin miksi ihmeessä pitäisi hankkia sähköauto?! Tämä menee samaan sarjaan kaikkien muiden onnistuneiden ekomarkkinointikikkojen kanssa: onnistunut ekobrändäys ja kulutus senkun lisääntyy (kun onhan se tosi jees hankkia se ekologinen vaihtoehto). Itse ainakin edustan kantaa, jonka mukaan kuluttamatta jättäminen on aina parempi vaihtoehto. Toki ymmärrän, että ihmisillä on erilaisia tarpeita, ja todelliseen tarpeeseen ostettu tuote on toki paikallaan hankkia mahdollisimman moni asia tiedostaen.Kivaa viikonloppua!Fransu
