Anthony Tolliver, a new signing for the Minnesota Timberwolves, plays for an audience of one; whether on court, sleeping or driving a car it’s the same for him; the One above is the one who counts.
Being a player in the NBA affords any man privileges known to precious few; Tolliver uses his platform to be a role model for God.
This is amazing perspective for someone who’s reached the highest level in their field of passion.
For us, it’s no different.
Imagine being captivated, genuinely, by God in all we do, and not being so drawn by pleasing or placating people.
Imagine using the platform we have—and we’re all blessed with some sort of platform, albeit not usually one with the prestige of being part of the NBA—to ‘go’ for God; to be the role model of humility, compassion, grace and patience.
