Don't mock Tim Tebow

(CNN) -- Sports loom large in the public's mind today. From the Penn State and Syracuse scandals to the upcoming BCS Bowl Series and the NFL playoffs, much attention is being paid to our athletes and coaches.

...Tebow is a good man and a good football player. He's a man of character, faith and integrity. He's also a Heisman Trophy winner, a two-time BCS national champion and arguably one of the greatest college football players of all time.

...Tebow is a role model for sports fans everywhere. But instead of lifting him up, too many commentators, critics and even fellow athletes mock and deride him and hope that he fails.

The latest example is "Tebowing," where one kneels in prayer with his or her head bent in mockery of Tebow's usual touchdown celebration prayer...

Critics have a problem with who Tebow is as a man. They are bothered by his faith, character and conviction.

...Men such as Tebow are not in over supply. Despite what his critics say, he should not stop what he is doing. We need men like him, the type of men many fathers would want their daughters to marry and many mothers would want their sons to grow up to be.

Favorite Bible story: I love the story in Luke 23:39-43
when a criminal hanging next to Jesus said to Him,
“Remember me when You come into Your kingdom!” All it
took for Jesus to say, “Today you shall be with me in
paradise,” was a heart change toward the Lordunderstanding
that he was in need of a Savior, and the One
hanging next to Him was God!

Favorite thing about FCA: Participating in sports allows one
to learn commitment, how to handle winning and losing, and
learning to be part of a team. These all can be challenging,
but when applying faith through them all, there can be many
life lessons learned; the most important being a close
relationship with Jesus!

I follow Jesus because: He is my HOPE! I couldn’t live
without Him.
