Peyton Manning may be one of the best NFL quarterbacks of all time, but it turns out that he is also a huge Christian. The Broncos QB opened up about GOD. Many will critcize him for talking about the real Hall of Famer, but not us.
Manning wrote in his new book:
For me generally it had always been the big four: faith, family, friends, and football, as important as football is to me, it can never be higher than fourth. My faith has been number one since I was thirteen years old.Some players get more vocal about it . . . and some point to Heaven after scoring a touchdown and praise Godafter games. I have no problem with that. But I don’t do it, and don’t think it makes me any less a Christian. I just want my actions to speak louder, and I don’t want to be more of a target for criticism.I’ve been blessed—having so little go wrong in my life, and being given so much. I pray every night, sometimes long prayers about a lot of things and a lot of people, but I don’t talk about it or brag about it because that’s between God and me, and I’m no better than anybody else in God’s sight.But I consider myself fortunate to be able to go to Him for guidance, and I hope (and pray) I don’t do too many things that displease Him. . . . I believe, too, that life is much better and freer when you’re committed to God in that way.
