Philadelphia Eagles and the Bible on YouVersion

Did you know that professional football players from the Philadelphia Eagles have put together a study of verses from the Bible on humility? Quarterback Carson Wentz, along with teammates, Trey Burton, Nick Foles, Zach Ertz, and Chris Maragos, together with Jordan Matthews of the Buffalo Bills, have joined together to talk about Bible verses in a fifteen-day devotional study for the YouVersion Bible App—available on more than 250 million devices around the world.

Each day one of the players discusses a Bible verse that has become meaningful in their life—both on the field and off. On day one, quarterback Nick Foles is featured quoting 2 Corinthians 12:9: “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”
