Stephen Curry, 32, is one of the best long-distance shooters in the history of basketball. Now entering his 12th season in the NBA, Curry has made 2,500 3-point shots in his career. Only Ray Allen and Reggie Miller have made more.
While natural talent has a lot to do with Curry’s success, you just don’t get to be that good without a lot of practice. This past Saturday, Stephen ended a practice session by shooting some 3-pointers from deep in the corner. Someone started video recording his shooting as he got on a hot streak. When it was all over, Curry made 105 straight shots from 3-point range. That’s right. 105 straight shots from 3-point range.
If you don’t know anything about basketball, trust me, this was an amazing feat! The only way anyone could ever get that good at shooting a basketball is if they practice a lot.
The same principle holds true for Christian living. If you want to be good at it, you have to put it into practice!
“Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.”—Philippians 4:9.
