I’ve been wanting to comment on Tebowmania the last few weeks, but have never really coalesced anything substantial together (btw, I love Tebow). This whole time I’ve been so frustrated at the hate Tebow has been getting and I feel this recent article below sums up why there is so much hate (sort of how I wrote about the torrid unforgiveness shown Michael Vick last year).
But there’s always been something nagging on me about Tebow’s disposition. Not that he’s necessarily doing anything wrong or disingenuous at all…but that he’s sort of “missing” something related on how to use his platform most effectively. I think Kurt Warner, no one more qualified to constructively and lovingly criticize Tebow if anyone, articulated it best when he said Tebow may want to be more “strategic” in his sharing his love for Christ. The part I most agree with is the part about living the Gospel, using words when necessary yes, but let others glorify Christ through your testimony…sometime you just don’t have to do it yourself. And you want to be careful not to throw your "pearls among swine," which I think Warner is trying to get at as well.
I feel like Warner was more encouraging Tim to remember Matthew 5:16,
“In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” -Matthew 5:16
