Matthew 12:34 says that out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks. Sadly, when professional athletes are mic’d it usually shows that their hearts are full of selfishness, pride, and anger. Tim Tebow shows something else. How many times have you heard an explicative when some broadcast listens in on the sidelines!
Not so with Tim Tebow. One more reason why my respect for Tebow continues to increase is listening to this 10 minute recording of his words on the field against the Chicago Bears.
Whatever you might say about his skills, his prospect as an NFL athlete, or the way he uses his platform to proclaim Christ, it seems evident that what comes out of his heart in the heat of battle is the heart of a Spirit-filled Christian, one who prays without ceasing and whose heart and mouth are filled with psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs.
Pray for this grid iron warrior to keep contending for the faith, as he presses for the end zone and uses his influence to tell others about Christ.
Soli Deo Gloria, dss
