In-between leading his team to the NBA finals, and being a dad to three kids under seven, Steph Curry released episode five of his Facebook series, “Stephen vs. The Game,” to which he dedicated to his faith.
The episode, titled “Faith,” details the impact Curry’s relationship with Jesus Christ has had on his basketball career, his family, and how he deals with every obstacle that comes his way.
“Faith” begins with Curry explaining how at the end of the day, his faith resides in his Creator because he knows he can only control so much, and that there is a much bigger power controlling the universe.
“My faith is tested on the court as much as it is in life,” Curry said on the show.
“It’s the part that always keeps me focused on what I need to do when it comes to my family, when it comes to my job, when it comes to how I treat other people, my appreciation for life and all the good things that happen and how to deal with the bad things that happen.”
The 3X NBA Champion point guard for the Golden State Warriors believes fully that his strengths, abilities, and talents come from God. This pushes him put his faith first in all aspects of life, whether that is family, or on the court.
“I put believer first, because that is supposed to be the roots of everything that I do as a believer, as a husband, as a father, and on down from there.”
“Faith to me is believing in the unseen, and having a conviction that there is a higher power that has given me a purpose to what I am doing on this earth,” he added. “For me, that is the foundation to how I live my life and how I want to see the world through that lens.”
How family and faith has shaped his life
The NBA superstar grew up going to church. Every Wednesday, he would attend the youth service at church, and then on Sundays, his family would all attend the morning service.
Curry’s father, Dell Curry, also shared in the episode how foundational faith had been to both him and Steph’s mother and how they made sure to instill the same values in their children.
