Tim Tebow: ‘Our Main Audience Isn’t Other People, It’s God’
By Movieguide® Contributor
In a new social media post, football star Tim Tebow reminded people that their main audience should always be God.
“Growing up, I always wanted people to like me,” Tebow wrote. “I was what you would call a people pleaser. Today, while I still strive to do good things for others as we all should, I’ve come to realize that our main audience in life isn’t other people. It’s God.
“Be motivated not by what other people think about you but by what God thinks about you!” he concluded.
Tebow frequently takes to social media to share messages like this with his followers. Movieguide® previously reported:
Football star Tim Tebow took to social media to share an encouraging message with his fans and followers.
Tebow posted a screenshot of one of his tweets that read, “God doesn’t call us to be average. Don’t settle because you’re afraid, because the pressure is too high or because you had a bad experience in the past. You are made for more than just getting by!”
He continued his inspiring message in the caption of his post, writing, “God wants to use you where you are with what you have. Not just in the future when you get to where you think you want to go, but now. Don’t wait until you feel equipped to live a life that counts!”
The football player also uses his platform to raise awareness about sex trafficking. Movieguide® previously reported:
Tim Tebow and his foundation are raising money to build the TTF Protection Center in Thailand as a place to protect up to forty girls rescued from human trafficking.
In a recent Instagram video, Tebow shared, “A few years ago, we deepened our fight in this terrible evil in the world of human trafficking and child exploitation. And in the last 365 days, we’re so excited to share with you that we have grown so much and been part of rescuing thousands and building safe homes in so many different countries.”
Movieguide® previously reported on the work Tebow’s foundation does to fight trafficking. “We’re in 67 countries and we’re building more hospitals right now and we’re building more special needs orphanages and villages and rescuing girls from trafficking. And, I just am so passionate about that.”
Tebow launched this newest campaign with RAPHA International, an organization “committed to offering hope and healing to survivors of child slavery and sexual exploitation.”
This home will specifically “provide elevated security for at-risk survivors while their traffickers face prosecution.”
“The Thai government, Thai police have asked our partners in RAPHA International for a protection center because there are so many girls that had been rescued from trafficking,” Tebow explains. However, they “are still in danger with active threats, death threats and prices on their head, just so they can’t testify against their trafficker.”
Tebow believes this is because the traffickers do not want to face justice, and “they are capable of atrocious acts of evil to silence those speaking against them.”
“This protection center will provide love, safety and care for 40 girls at a time,” he shares. “But right now we have to act urgently. There are 15 Girls in Thailand waiting on this home.”
He launched this campaign for his 35th birthday, asking his followers to help contribute to this vital work.
Tebow shares that the protection center will cost $1.3 million, but through his followers’ previous support, his foundation can already commit $600,000 to the project.
He encourages his followers to “be a part of this team that doesn’t look away while they’re in their darkest hour of need.”
The TTF Protection Center will be a place where these victims of human trafficking, exploitation and sexual abuse “can feel love, protected, supported, and have everything they need.”
“I don’t know if you can get much closer to who we are as a foundation than protecting the most vulnerable!” Tebow shared. “It is my hope and prayer that you’ll join us in building the TTF Protection Center.”
