Lin's Faith

New York Knicks star Jeremy Lin says he's grateful for how he has been blessed.  Lin said in a recent post-game interview, "I'm just thankful to God for everything. Like the Bible says, 'God works in all things for the good of those who love Him.'" Lin became a Christian as a freshman in high school, leading his team in California to a state championship before playing college basketball for Harvard. Active in the chapter of InterVarsity at Harvard and in 2010, he told about the importance of his faith:
"Not just in basketball, but I think in life, when you're called to be a Christian, you're automatically called to be different from everyone else. In today's world of basketball, it makes you really different, because the things that society values aren't necessarily in line with what God values. Much of it comes down to humility. We as Christians are called to be humble. And if we really understand the Gospel, we will be humble. We should be humble, and understand that everything that is good comes from God."
