Out of high school, star basketball player Jeremy Lin couldn’t get a college scholarship. Even with his basketball success at Harvard, he wasn’t drafted by the NBA.
I’ve often heard that believing is all we must do to see our dreams fulfilled. Countless successes have been cited to prove that claim, but I’m not buying it. Why? With all the practice and intense believing I can muster, the goal would have to be two feet lower before I could dunk a basketball.
Could it be that seeking God’s plan is better than believing in our own dreams? Maybe so. I believe Jeremy Lin would say so. After leading the New York Knicks to seven straight wins and the NBA playoffs, he now plays for the Houston Rockets. Some people believe the 2013–2014 season will be his best ever.
Lin is the star of the show in the Linsanity movie released on October 4.
