How many of us can be as gracious as Tim Tebow?

“I just wanted to show character. You just continue to fight, and it doesn’t change who you are, who you play, how you go out there. You should be the same at all times,” Tebow said. “That’s what I wanted to show. It didn’t matter whether it was the first play or the last play or you were down by 42. I was going to be the same player and I was still going to give everything I have. Because that’s all I have to give. Every time I step on the field, I’m going to give my whole heart, regardless score-wise of what’s happening.”

After loosing by 35 points, he still had a positive attitude & focused on the good that had come out of the season, relationships built, the time he got to spend with sick kids.  Had he not thanked Jesus & gotten on his knee after each successful game, would the media have showered him with such fame? Or such derision?

What  wonderful role model for us, our kids, athletes, heck, everyone should be able take something away from this! Way to go Tim! And thank you!
