Steph Curry is probably one of the most recognized basketball players in the world right now, but he’s also a devoted follower of Christ.
Just from hearing him speak and play on the court, you can see the influence that God has in his life. In this candid video, Steph opens up about growing up with a father who was in the NBA, and how they still play HORSE together today.
Watch the video below.
We place a lot of stock in numbers, wanting to finish first, wanting to know where we rank compared to our peers. Lists are compiled annually of the wealthiest, the most influential, and the most famous. Athletes are used to being ranked, and most businesses rely on numbers to determine their budgets, their goals, and their margins. Usually, people are only happy when they’re moving up on the list.
However, there’s one list that we should hope to be last on: those people who want to be first in the kingdom of God. Jesus tells us that if you want to demonstrate your passion, commitment, and dedication to the Lord, you must be the servant of all—last on the list. In a dog-eat-dog world where competing means knowing your numerical place, it’s not easy to adopt a mindset of servanthood.
Today, let Jesus be your role model for how to be first by being last.

Pray: “Lord, forgive me for wanting to be first and to compete with those around me. Strengthen my heart to serve humbly, to be first only by being last.”
