It's Not For Me To Judge

Last night the Steelers lost to the Denver Broncos. And today all the talk is about Tim Tebow.

Should he be speaking out as boldly as he does about His love for God?

Seems a lot of people are hating. They kind of want him to just shut up. They say if he was humble he would just go off in the corner and do his religion thing alone. He's making people uncomfortable. He's setting himself up for a big crash and burn.

Everyone seems to have an opinion on it and what surprises me most are Christians. Why are they hating on their brother?

I think what we all need to do is stop worrying about Tim Tebow and whether or not he is doing it right or wrong. That's between him and God.

Instead... let's face the reality of why it's bothering us so much. Does it make us uncomfortable to see a Christian that isn't afraid to speak boldly about God because it convicts us? Because we aren't doing it? Because we've been ashamed to speak out about our God and our faith and our love for Him?

Do we feel guilty because we haven't used our platforms in life to share the Good News? To point people to the one who can save them?

Why do we get uncomfortable with a Christian living life boldly? Speaking truth?

Jesus lived boldly.
The disciples lived boldly.
John the Baptist lived boldly.

Maybe it's time to stop focusing on Tebow's speck of sawdust and work on removing our own planks.

Let God be the judge.

I simply fail to see what all the controversy is about.
