Where This Star Clemson Tigers Quarterback Finds His Identity Will Inspire You (Hint: It’s Not Football)

Very humble.

Proverbs 22:4 tells us, “The reward for humility and fear of the LORD is riches and honor and life.” Scripture, especially the book of Proverbs, is absolutely packed with confirmation of one simple truth: God loves a humble heart.

Although his incredible skill and vision on the field have Trevor Lawrence pegged as a “once in a generation” football player, the Clemson Tigers quarterback is staying humble because he knows where his true identity lies: in Christ.

Lawrence, a freshman QB, threw 327 yards and three touchdowns at the 2018 Cotton Bowl in December, helping to carry the Tigers to a stunning 30-3 victory against Notre Dame.

“The true freshman Lawrence looked more like an NFL quarterback than a guy who was in high school last year,” The State wrote, detailing Clemson’s Cotton Bowl victory.

“He’s just so poised. He just sees it. And he’s got a gift of an arm,” Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said, praising the young athlete after the game. “But I just love his humility and how consistent he is with his preparation, day in and day out. Easy, easy guy to coach. Easy guy to get behind and support. His teammates love him.”

While his performance on the field was nothing short of legendary, it’s his faithful humility off the field at a post-game press talk that really made Lawrence shine.

“Football is important to me, but it’s not the biggest thing in my life. My faith is,” Lawrence said. “That just comes from knowing who I am outside of [football].”

In spite of how promising his future in football may seem, Lawrence is keeping a humble heart rooted in God’s truth. “I just know that no matter how big the situation is, it’s not going to define me,” he continued.

“It’s just putting my identity in what Christ says and who He thinks I am, and who I know that He says I am,” Lawrence added, smiling.

Lawrence’s talent on the field isn’t to be discounted, but it’s his love for Jesus and his humble heart that are really going to take him places!

Southern Restaurant Scorched After Refusing to Serve Unvaccinated People

The unvaccinated are quickly becoming second class citizens in America.

In these late-stages of the pandemic, there are a number of emerging plot lines that almost seem more controversial than those that we experienced at the beginning of this fiasco, and it makes us wonder if some of it isn’t just for show. For instance, in the restaurant industry, where just about every businesses owner is struggling mightily, there are a number of different approaches to dealing with this latest “delta” variant of COVID-19.  This is of particular note now that many establishments had reopened during the lull in cases, and are now hanging on for dear life during “delta”. But one restaurant in the deep south has thrown their prosperity aside, and are making the controversial decision to serve only vaccinated customers. An Atlanta restaurant is making the bold decision to serve only customers who are fully vaccinated. Argosy Restaurant and Bar, located in East Atlanta Village, is one of the first businesses in Georgia to mandate with signs that say “No Vax, No Service.” The company owner made the decision earlier this week after he and several of his employees, who were all fully vaccinated, contracted the virus as breakthrough cases. The owner has suggested that these breakthrough cases were worse for business than treating the unvaccinated as though they are second class citizens. “We did it strictly as a business decision after multiple staff members tested positive,” said restaurant owner Armando Celentano. “We had to close down during a busy weekend, losing out on tens of thousands of dollars.” The decisions certainly stirred up a great deal of conversation on social media, where the restaurant received both praise and criticism for its decision.

US Women’s Soccer Team Skips Representing U.S.A. at Opening Ceremony

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the Olympics opening ceremonies.

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the opening ceremonies at the Tokyo Olympics Friday. The famously anti-American soccer team claimed that they could not attend because they were scheduled to attend practice during the opening event, according to WXIA-TV. “Obviously we can’t be there, I don’t know who scheduled us to practice at this time,” chief anti-American team star Megan Rapinoe told the media. The women’s soccer team was all about protesting against the U.S.A. during its first Olympics game this week but lost to New Zealand in a crushing 3-0 final. Rapinoe added that this year’s gams are different than past games. “It looks quite different and feels quite different than in the past, but all of us are thrilled to be here,” she said. Team members Abby Dahlkemper and Rapinoe enacted a lame “private parade” and posted it to Twitter: https://twitter.com/USWNT/status/1418557013739536390 The America-hating women’s soccer team was not the only American team that skipped the opening ceremonies. Both the women’s and the men’s U.S. gymnastics teams also skipped the ceremonies. They similarly held their own version of the parade” https://twitter.com/InsideGym/status/1418539840564572160 Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.
