Peyton Manning stand for Christian values read at Hendersonvilleonline

Not only is Peyton Manning one of the best NFL quarterbacks of all time, he is a devout Christian who recently shared his commitment to Christ in a very public way.

It’s not always popular to take a stand for Christian values. Case in point: the media scrutiny over Tim Tebow’s faith-based views. Apparently, Manning is one star athlete with his head screwed on straight.

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 God after 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.
