Americans love Tim Tebow, and it’s easy to see why. He’s a great athlete, and he loves the Lord.
He took the time in a press conference to make sure everyone knew that despite his success in professional sports, it’s not actually what he wants to be known for. Tim knows that sports will some day pass, and that his life better stand for something good.
For him, that something is Jesus Christ. He grew up a missionary’s kid and spent his childhood with his parents in various parts of the world living out his Christian faith. He stopped his press conference to drive this point home to the reporters about how he splits his time between professional sports, and his charity work.
So much of sports is handling pressure. Well what pressure do you have if you’re 0-12 and you’re at the plate versus someone that is fighting for their life?
Versus someone that we picked up on the side of the street in Haiti because they were cripple? Or they’re not wanted, or they’re thrown into the garbage?
How do you compare those things? For me there’s not a comparison. And that’s why you’re able to handle sports as a game because it still is.
I want to be someone that was known for bringing faith, hope, and love to those needing a brighter day in their darkest hour of need.
As fellow Christians we’ve been blessed to be a blessing a lost and hurting world. We’re not all Tim Tebows with a platform to be seen by millions, but there’s a part that all of us can play in ministering Jesus to a world that needs Him desperately.
It’s always great seeing Tim truly speak from his heart.
