For God So Loved

After a little bit of black out in protest of SOPA yesterday, I am back, and continuing a Tim Tebow sort of week.  I am not sure that you saw this little video during the Pat-Bronco’s game or not.  If you didn’t, take the three minutes to watch it.

Well, that’s a pretty good piece.  But I guess that depends on your viewpoint of the Christ.  As with everything Focus on the Family does, this one is full of arguments and controversy – but look at some of the results of this small campaign.

I hope you are able to find some encouragement from that piece and from these words penned by the author John and paraphrased slightly in the Message:


 16-18“This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again. Anyone who trusts in him is acquitted; anyone who refuses to trust him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. And why? Because of that person’s failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God when introduced to him. John 3:16 The Message (MSG)

Hurray, It’s Iced Tea Day

Now, this is a day for me – National Iced Tea Day.  The only way it could be better is if it were National Sweet Tea Day.  But who cares, pick your version and sit back and sip on it and enjoy this pre-summer heat way.

Speaking of T’s – here’s two that are quite cool – Tim Tebow.  Tim is back in action selling his new book Through My Eyes and getting getting ready for this fall’s “football season”.   Anyway, apparently according to this Focus on the Family story Tim has created quite a buzz among Broncos fans with his mixed up priorities.  Here is what he has been recently quoted as saying

My No. 1 focus was on my foundation, the Tim Tebow Foundation, to bring faith, hope and love to those needing a brighter day in the darkest hour of need.

That is not only sweet, but is quite icey coming from the double T.
(Yes, that was a pretty ridiculous sentence, and yes, I probably should have deleted that!)

But it’s not a ridiculous thought.  It’s actually very impressive and shows his priorities.  I thinks it’s a good example of living for christ and dying for yourself, even though the foundation is named afer himself :),  and it should give you some motivation today.  It sort of reminds me of this.

33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Matthew 6:33 New International Version (NIV)

So grab your iced tea, but remember what you are really seeking.
