In one of the best and most exciting World Series in history, Jose Altuve, Houston Astros’ second baseman, gives all the glory to God. Altuve, who is playing in his first World Series, was told that he would never be successful and wouldn’t ever be in the major leagues.
He is now in the middle of proving them wrong.
In an interview, he told The Houston Chronicle, “To achieve success wasn’t to get to the major leagues or have the best season in the world. The best success is to live your life the way God wants you to. If you can do that, if you can be good with God, then I think you will have success in your life.” He also emphasizes the importance of thanking God for all the blessings, not just focusing on asking Him for things. He says, “We need to not just ask God but thank Him for everything like our health, our family. And ask Him to bless our homes and to always be present in our daily lives. And to keep us safe is most important.”
Altuve dedicates his success to his family for their relentless support and his strong faith.
He also talked to CBN sports about his faith and how it pushes him to continue to strive hard every day. He shares that he’s determined to make a big win in the series following Houston’s devastation from Hurricane Harvey: “And talking about Houston, it’s been a city that’s been going through lot of things this year. And now we are in the World Series. We want to win this World Series for them because they deserve it and because they’ve been true fans all year long.”
