There’s been a lot of discussion recently over whether God divinely intervenes in Tim Tebow’s football games to help him win. Does God even care about football?
I was inspired to re-watch and post the coach’s “new team philosophy” speech from Facing the Giants. In my opinion, it really hits the nail on the head. It answers the question so well I can’t add anything to it. (Actual speech starts around 2:55.)
Coach: I think football is just one of the tools we use to honor God.
Player: So you think God does care about football?
Coach: I think he cares about your faith. He cares about where your heart is. And if you can live your faith out on the football field, then yes, God cares about football, because He cares about you. He sent His Son Jesus to die for us so we could live for Him. That’s why we’re here.
