Tim Tebow, National Champion-Favored by God?
I will never forget last year when Tim Tebow won the Heisman Trophy. He walked to the mike and said, "I want to first and foremost thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ." Tim Tebow has never held back that his faith life is first and foremost. His parents were missionaries and if not playing football, he has said publicly that he would do the same.
However, with a National Championship under his belt after last night's win, I wonder if some people could get the impression that he makes it sound like God has favor upon him to win! Ever feel that way with some pro athlete's. They make it sound like God is on their side or that their team is God's team (a.k.a. Kurt Warner & the Rams, Reggie White & the Packers, etc). I'm not saying anyone said this specifically, but one can get that impression!
Does God favor one team or athlete above the next? I will address this question tomorrow!
