In the midst of an outstanding season, Golden State Warriors' Point Guard Stephen Curry's focus remains on being a humble servant, both to God and those around him. After leading the Warriors to the playoffs, starring in his first all-star game and scoring the fifth most points this season, Stephen's unassuming personality has made him a fan favorite and an inspiration to his teammates. “It’s something that’s a lifestyle for him,” fellow teammate David Lee said as he reflected on his own decision to put God in the center of his life. “I’ve watched him sometimes from a distance, but I’ve also asked him questions about his faith. He’s been a huge influence on me.”
Last summer Stephen Curry took a missions trip to Tanzania where he donated 816 mosquito nets, three for each three-pointer he made, to help prevent malaria among the people. While there, he wrote a poem for his wife and 18 month old daughter, Riley, “When I look at our daughter, I’m beaming with pride. She’s the best example of our love inside.” After each of those three-pointers, Stephen points to God as a reminder to himself and those watching where his strength 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.”
