Tim Tebow, Tim Tebow, Tim Tebow.
He’s everywhere these days. And I have to admit I really liked it that as I was sitting in BW3 yesterday watching some games, the pregame conversation consisted of more faith talk then it did touchdown talk! So Tim Tebow makes yet another appearance in the Buffet.
Last Friday, I was shown this video of Tim Tebow mic’d up in the Broncos come from behind win against the Bears from the previous week. I find this to be amazing. I actually have loved hearing this stuff from the time I was a little kid. I think the sideline banter is always fascinating. But this video I find very impressive. It’s not really the come from behind effort, or anything about the football game. It’s more in the way Tim Tebow handles himself on the sideline. His temperament, his encouragement, his focus – and the evidence of where his treasure really lies. He seems so at peace with himself and with what is going on around him. Hm.. that sounds a lot like the words we read in that book we call the Bible.
To me it’s so impressive to see how even when he was behind, he was still focused on encouragement and giving effort. I am sure he gets frustrated, I am sure there are moments that he would not want us to hear – he is human. And I am sure there are others who, in their own jobs, are also great examples of this. But to see this, in the limelight and the pressure of big time football, is quite inspiring. I think this is a great example, one that we can take directly into our own fields of employment.
I think it would be worth to take the 10 minutes and watch this. The example that you can see from him will help point you and others to the Christ.
5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6 New International Version (NIV)
