Tim Tebow rose to fame as a college football star, but he is not shying away from warning others about turning high profile athletes and sports into idols.
"We choose to idolize certain things, and love certain things," Tebow said while speaking at a benefit for the Cancer Wellness Foundation of Central Alabama. "I'm not saying it's wrong to love sports, I love them as much as anybody. But do we choose to really see what matters?"
As a speaker at the Montgomery, Alabama, benefit called "The Journey Continues" Tebow invited three "wish girls" battling cancer to join him. Instead of focusing on celebrities, the athlete-turned-college football analyst spoke about how "messed up" it was that people were not honoring those trying to overcome cancer. more >>

With the holiday season underway, the Tim Tebow Foundation is offering people tips on how to overcome struggles with stress and feelings of inadequacy.
The Foundation, formed by 28-year-old NFL hopeful and SEC college football analyst Tim Tebow, recently posted an article on its website titled "Five Tips to Thrive During The Holidays" and uses scriptures to encourage people who may not be experiencing joy during the holidays. The first tip is based on the phrase "comparison is the thief of joy" and Psalm 23:1, which reads, "The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want."
"The holiday season can often go from a season of thanksgiving, to a season of being more aware than ever of the things we do not have. Before long, we begin to believe lies about ourselves, and the discontent becomes consuming," the article reads. " God has orchestrated your life, your family and your story to be perfectly individual. When we compare ourselves to others, we rob ourselves of the joy that exists in being exactly who God created us to be." more >>
