Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is not relying on his accomplishments, playoff experience, or personal strength to keep him steadied as Super Bowl LVII approaches.

The most talented quarterback in the NFL is relying on God to ground him as he prepares to play in the biggest event in American sports.

"My Christian faith plays a role in everything I do. I mean, I always ask God to lead me in the right direction and let me be who I am for His name," Mahomes said on Monday via KMBC-TV.

The Chiefs’ signal-caller has been outspoken about his faith before. After suffering an ankle injury in the divisional round matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Mahomes worked incredibly hard to get back on the field for the AFC Championship game against the Cincinnati Bengals. After a gutsy 23-20 win, Mahomes thanked God for being healthy enough to play.

If you ever think you’re too important or accomplished enough to not need God, think again. This guy will be making at least $39 million per year for the next 10 years, has a Super Bowl title under his belt, friends and family that care about him, and a beautiful wife.

And yet he still realizes that none of that can keep him grounded or humble, and only God can do that.

Maybe there’s a lesson we can all learn from this.
