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.
From an interview with Jeremy Lin, Christian and pro basketball player. I'm thinking a lot about vocation and work and what it means to be a Christian first. These words apply not only to basketball but all lines of work.
