Humble Star

Davis blocks another shot

University of Kentucky basketball star Anthony Davis has blocked a phenomenal 175 shots so far this season. Davis refuses to call undue attention to himself after blocking an opponent’s shot. He does not wag his finger, beat his chest or otherwise taunt other players.

Davis’ humble demeanor has not gone unnoticed. Mississippi Coach Andy Kennedy said, “It gives me hope. To me, it’s refreshing in this day and age because it’s not about look-at-me. He just lets his play do the talking.”

Humility is a rare virtue in the world of sports, yet it is something that God looks for in all of us. Pride is a deadly sin, therefore Scripture continually urges us to remain humble. So let’s avoid being boastful or proud. Let’s just let our lives do the talking.

“Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.”—1 Peter 5:6.
