Stephen Curry Wears Bible Verse On Sneakers During NBA Finals

The NBA Finals are in full force and the Golden State Warriors are once again in the drivers seat, leading the Cavaliers two games to none.

One of the key players for the Warriors is two-time MVP Stephen Curry. Steph has averaged 30 points through the first two games, and even had his first career playoff triple-double in Game 2, scoring 32 points with 11 assists and 10 rebounds.

Curry, an outspoken Christian, has never shied away from his faith in Jesus, and in Game 1 of the Finals, he let the world know where his priorities are by posting a bible verse on his sneakers.

The verse on Curry’s sneaker is Romans 8:28, which reads — “And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose.”

Steph has always been open about using his sneakers as a platform to share scripture. In 2015, he released his new Curry One Under Armour shoe and had “I can do all things” on the inside tongue of the sneaker, which comes from Philippians 4:13 which states,”I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me (KJV).”

“You don’t want to scare people away with this idea that I’m perfect or that you have to be perfect to find that calling,” Curry told a group of reporters in 2015. “It means a lot to be able to spread that message, whether that’s what you believe or whether it helps you find whatever it is that motivates you to do all things. Every time you put on the shoe, it’s a good reminder of what is possible.”

In 2013, Curry wrote a column for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, where he spoke about his love for pointing people towards Jesus.

“I know I have a place in Heaven waiting for me because of Him, and that’s something no earthly prize or trophy could ever top,” Curry wrote.
