Lamar Jackson on How God Keeps Him Humble | RELEVANT Magazine

On Wednesday, Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson was fielding questions from an adoring crowd of reporters, clearly having fun with the chance to interview one among 2019’s breakout NFL stars. Sizzling on the heels of being chosen for the Professional Bowl, one reporter requested Jackson simply what retains him humble. His reply: “The Lord.”

“I give Him all His praise. The glory, the honor,” Jackson continued. “I could have been doing anything, you know? It’s crazy. I’ve been talking to Him about it, just saying ‘I appreciate you. I thank you.’”

Jackson went on to say “when you feel like you’re bigger than the Lord? That’s when all that success dies. It goes away. You have to let Him know He’s the reason you’re having that much success.”

“Just gotta keep going,” Jackson mentioned. “And let the Lord know He’s number one.”
