Super Bowl Controversy?

With the Super Bowl approaching on us this weekend I thought I would link a couple of articles written about the Tim Tebow ad that will air during the Super Bowl. One of the articles is by a pro-choice columnist, Sally Jenkins, who writes for the Washington Post who makes many great points but also uses some crude language that may not be suitable for everyone. Please use discretion and wisdom in reading both of these articles.

That being said praise God for Tim Tebow and his backbone to stand up for what he believes. Here is a snippet of what Sally Jenkins wrote in the Washington Post about Tebow:

"Here's what we do need a lot more of: Tebows. Collegians who are selfless enough to choose not to spend summers poolside, but travel to impoverished countries to dispense medical care to children, as Tebow has every summer of his career. Athletes who believe in something other than themselves, and are willing to put their backbone where their mouth is. Celebrities who are self-possessed and self-controlled enough to use their wattage to advertise commitment over decadence."

Here are the links for articles from the Washington Post and ESPN.

"In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven" (Matthew 5:16). Pray for Tebow that he would continue to represent Christ well. Also pray for boldness for yourself to stand up and proclaim the gospel in a way that the world will see Christ.

Grace upon grace,
