Metaxas Praises Altuve's Faith That Guides His Life

Hat Tip: Gary Wiram who writes on his "Here I Raise My Ebenezer" blog, informed me of this great article about one of my heroes, Jose Altuve, on BreakPoint: "Thank God For Jose Altuve".

I love this article by Eric Metaxas and Roberto Rivera on Breakpoint, "Thank God For Jose Altuve: An Athlete We Can Look Up To".  Eric and Roberto's main theme about the man who is short in stature but big in heart, the American League's Most Valuable Player, second baseman for the Houston Astros, Jose Altuve: "It’s refreshing to hear about a sportsman who acknowledges God’s providence in his life."

Houston Astros 2nd baseman, Jose Altuve - short in stature, big in heart
From the article: "Altuve told the Houston Chronicle that, for him, achieving success wasn’t getting “into the major leagues or [having] the best season in the world. The best success is to live your life the way God wants you to.”
He added, “We need to not just ask God but thank Him for everything like our health, our family.” He told CBN, “I feel like every morning when you wake up you have to thank Him just for another day. I do it every day.”
All of which makes Jose Altuve someone we should all look up to, no matter our height."
All of Houston so admires this "big man." He captured our imagination and gave us inspiration in his great feats on the baseball field in helping our Houston Astros win the World Series - the Astros first championship in history.  This article by Eric Metaxas even increases our admiration for him.
One of the good feel moments during the playoffs was when a reporter asked Jose Altuve after a big win in which recently acquired pitcher, Justin Verlander had pitched, "What do you think about Justin Verlander?"  Jose answered, "I literally love Justin Verlander."
Well, I can't speak for all Houstonians, but I bet all of them feel the same way about Jose Altuve as I do: 'I literally love Jose Altuve'.
