Seahawks Quarterback Russell Wilson never shied away from sharing his love for God and his fellow man. In fact, it is his life’s purpose to serve and help his ‘brothers and sisters’ in changing their lives for the better. Helping others to get on a path that leads to true joy is what he hopes becomes his legacy in life.
On the field as a Quarterback, Wilson is all about winning. Off the field, he sets his focus on helping others to find the joy and peace that he feels himself through good choices and having hope and faith in God.
For this reason alone, it is no surprise that when the NFL told Wilson to not speak about his faith, he learned he could still share his love for God and message of hope, by his actions.
He has said many times that in his life, God comes first, family and friends second, and football third. Dedication to what is most important to him, is his strength.
“In terms of my faith, my faith is everything: God comes first, family and friends come second, and football comes third,” Wilson concluded. “I think when you keep it in that order, great things happen to you. You don’t stress out about much.”
It’s great to see someone who is heard by so many speak up and share a good message.
We have too many people in high places, who got to the places they wanted and then used their voices to give glory to themselves and not God. Sometimes they even forget where they came from and who brought them there.
