For You To Think About

Heisman Trophy winner and superstar University of Florida quarterback Tim Tebow, along with his mother Pam Tebow, starred in a pro-life television commercial during the 2010 Super Bowl.

The ad alluded the story of Pam’s pregnancy with Tim while she and husband Bob were serving as missionaries in the Philippines. Bob grieved over the loss of millions of American lives to abortion and prayed, “God, if you give me a son, I’ll raise him to be a preacher.” Soon afterwards, Pam learned she was pregnant.

But the couple faced a crisis. Pam contracted dysentery, fell into a coma, and was treated with strong medications. Doctors feared a stillbirth and urged her to abort. The Tebows’ faith led them to choose life for Tim.

Bob’s prayer was answered in an unusual way. Today, the young Tebow’s pulpit is the football arena. He is known not only for his athletic prowess but also as an outspoken man of faith and model of Christian character.

According to Focus on the Family, “The Tebows agreed to appear in the commercial because the issue of life is one they feel very strongly about.”

For You To Pray

Loving Father,
Help me to take a stand for life, no matter how big or small my circle of influence.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
