There was an article that came out on Yahoo! Sports entitled, “Tim Tebow ignores Brady Quinn’s slights while serving as dream date for 9-year-old.” It is the kind of story that uplifts you and lets you know that there are still a few famous people who know the world doesn’t revolve around them. I won’t list down the details of the article since you can read it for yourselves by clicking on the link. Even if you don’t read the article the title alone gives you the main gist. From tweet wars to chismis shows, the world is filled with celebrities and sports figures who would like nothing more than to see their antagonist suffer.
More than Tim Tebow’s declaration of faith, I really admire and commend the way he responds to the constant criticism and bashing from celebrities and football fans alike. Tebow didn’t comment on teammate, Brady Quinn’s comments regarding his public displays of faith because he was busy. He was busy taking Presli Collins, now 10 year old girl with a severe tumor disorder, to the Cartoon Network awards show.
It’s pretty easy to say that we’re Christians and that we’re followers of Christ. The difficult part comes when we are faced with trials, persecution, offenses, conflicts, etc. Will we react in a way that would cause people to stumble? Or will we respond in a way that would glorify God? No one said Christianity was easy.
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
