I am not going to lie. I am opinionated. There. I said it.
So this morning as I am scrolling through Facebook, I see a post about Jake Plummer criticizing Tim Tebow for being so vocal about his love for God and Jesus Christ. SERIOUSLY? I have said all along that I really like Tim Tebow. I loved watching him play in college. I loved how he conducted himself when he won his Heisman. Whether you like him as a quarterback or not does not matter to me. This guy is not afraid of being true to himself. I wonder how many other professional athletes or politicians or Hollywood type people are secretly praying? This guy puts it all out there.
How many of the "stars" do you see thanking God when they win the big game or title. That's okay for people like Jake Plummer I guess. But God forbid (pun intended) that you would think of praying to God every single day, or every single moment of every day and not just when you get what you want.
Maybe for people like Jake Plummer it is better to continue to honor and reward the athletes and celebrities who beat their wives and children, or who abuse drugs and alcohol. By all means, let's continue to hold them in the spotlight and run down someone who walks the walk! Better yet, let's continue to allow celebrities to tell us how to think politically and socially. They are very good at doing that.
It has always been my opinion that Tim Tebow has cost himself a career in the NFL, not because of his abilities on the field, but because he is not ashamed to publicly proclaim his love for Jesus Christ. You keep going Mr. Tebow. Maybe if more celebrities would live like you do, the world would start becoming a better and safer place to live. We wouldn't have to see and listen to news stories about children who are beaten, wives who are punched, arrests for DUI's, celebrities in court for drug issues and going into rehab. What would we watch on television without shows following these immoral and disgusting people throughout the days of their lives. Let's continue to put them on pedestals along with 16 year old girls having babies!
Don't stop living as you do Mr. Tebow. I for one will always stand up for you. My challenge to everyone - will you also stand up?
Wife, Mother, Mother, Mother, Mother, Mother, Mother, Mother, Nurse, Grandmother, Friend...that's me in a nutshell!
