Tim Tebow’s first spring training is officially underway! Recently in a press conference, he responded to a reporter with an eye opening statement…
What a beautiful statement…
This press conference reminded me to keep things in perspective. In our world today, we are often so self absorbed, spoiled, overindulged, and happy to be rewarded with participation trophies. The result is that we are often overly sensitive allowing the slightest correction or criticism to offend/hurt us. In sports, we feel so defeated about matters that mean nothing in the long run like making an error or being in a slump. How can we feel so pressured, so worried about ourselves when there are so many people suffering? There are people without clean water or shelter and we are worried about selfish superficial “1st world problems” like purchasing the latest cleats or high tech bats. There are much bigger things to worry about than my baseball games or being angry when my team loses in the playoffs. So much of our life is just a game filled with noise and stuff – it’s a social media profile. Life should be more than a stat line and likes/views on a post.
Let us all try to follow Tebow’s words as wanting to be a person that brings “faith, hope, and love to those needing a brighter day in their darkest hour of need.” The world is so much bigger than us and we must keep things in perspective. So let’s do better! Get out there and be someone’s home run while helping the less fortunate. It will result in the most rewarding stats of your life.
