Warriors’ star Stephen Curry has ties to the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA, www.fca.org), and today, the international sports ministry is congratulating Curry and Golden State on its second thrilling title in three years.
Curry, a two-time NBA MVP, has become the face of the league and shared his faith story in a recent issue of FCA Magazine.
“I’m not a guy who’s going to be trying to bash people over the head with the Bible,” Curry said in the May/June 2016 issue. “I want people to know when they see me play that something is different, that I play for something different, and whether I’m talking about it [or not], I just hope by the way I carry myself and by the way I play the game, they can see there’s something different about that guy. And they find out what it is, and then they know. It’s part of who I am.”
Curry also told FCA that his faith is his “driving force.” It’s both the anchor and rudder for his life as he navigates the remarkable, but often perilous, journey of being a famous athlete. In fact, in the wee hours of this morning, Curry tweeted, “Glory to God!”
“I’ve always been a believer that the Lord has put whatever talent in you, [and] whatever gift He has put in you, He wants you to get the most out of that. He wants you to succeed; He wants you to pursue and work and be passionate about it,” Curry said. “It’s not about getting any of the glory for yourself; it’s all for His [glory]. That’s where you have to keep perspective. Work at it and do all you can so you get the most out of yourself, but do it for His will.”
