I love what Jeremy has on his Twitter page - "to know Him is to want to know Him more". Awesome. I went on to find several interesting articles on Jeremy as well such as this one entitled Faith, Sin and Jeremy Lin in the Washington Post. Here is an excerpt of the interview I particularly enjoyed:
When people ask him, ‘How are you going to stay grounded? he says, ‘I understand that I’m a sinner.’ And when he says that, he’s saying that he understands that he’s a sinner saved by grace. He knows that [because] he came to salvation. He [knows] that what he has is not his and that does keep him grounded. That is part of Christian character that he continues to work on. I think we’d all agree that we need to be working on humility. That’s one of those things that he’s able to keep in check because he remembers where he came from and the work that God has already done in his life.”
In this day and age of negative publicity athletes often receive thanks to off the court/field antiques it's refreshing to hear such positive stories such as this. I looked on eBay for some cards of Jeremy Lin and after I saw the crazy amounts they are currently going for I decided to just put collecting his cardboard on the back burner for now.
