Tim Tebow On God’s Purpose: ‘I Want Every Person To Know Their Value!’

By Movieguide® Staff

Former NFL star Tim Tebow recently shared his thoughts on identity and COVID-19’s impact on younger generations. 

Tebow, who is passionate about using his platform to point people to God, shared statistics about how students see themselves in the social media age. 

“You don’t have to be like anybody else. If God wanted you to be like someone else, he would have made you like somebody else,” Tebow said in a video clip posted to his Instagram. “And so what we have now is we have young people that a third of them say that they’re lonely most of the time or all the time, two thirds of them say that they have no one in the world that believes, and 4% of our daily thoughts are spent on some form of comparison. Like that’s crazy. In 2019, 50% of our high school girls, were experiencing severe forms of sadness or loneliness.”

“I don’t think that’s just because they need more friends,” he continued. “I do believe community is important, But it’s not just about more friends. It’s about more worth. They need to understand how worthy they are, how special they are, how amazing they are. Not how amazing they will be if they change and they adapt to all these things that we say.”

Tebow also captioned the video and said those statistics encouraged him to write his new book, “Mission Possible.”

“Was so fired up, because I want every young person, every person actually to know their value!! **I meant to say 50% of HS girls are experiencing extreme sadness or hopelessness not loneliness,” he wrote. “This is why I’m so passionate about Mission Possible and helping people find their mission, pursue their purpose and create lives that count!”

Movieguide® previously reported on Tebow’s faith and new book: 

Former NFL player Tim Tebow recently shared the mission that God gave him to accomplish at the 2022 Passion Conference.

“Every single one of us has been given a mission by God, for God, and that mission is possible,” the 35-year-old shared.

“You see on the macro, I believe every single one of us has the same mission: To love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, strength and to love your neighbor as yourself. … But, I also believe that every single one of us, we have a micro-mission — something that God has designed exactly for you,” he added.

Tebow, who first rose to popularity for displaying his Christian faith as the star quarterback for the University of Florida Gators, also quoted Ephesians 2:10: “For we are His workmanship (or masterpieces), created in Christ Jesus for good works which God prepared before for us to walk in.”

“We have a micro-purpose, something designed exactly for you, that is only for you because before you were ever born, the God of this universe wrote a poem that in Christ Jesus is a masterpiece for good things for you to do,” Tebow said. “And guess what, your poem is just for you. It’s only for you. There is something so unique and special that is just for you. In Christ Jesus, you’re a masterpiece.”
