This afternoon I will be mailing out a personal note I have completed in the last few moments.
It goes something like this.
Dear Mr. Elway:
Readers Digest Version. Please trade Tim Tebow. I absolutely agree with you. He is not a proven NFL quarterback and should be traded in order to allow him to play for a club that actually believes in the guy. However, if you do let him go you might consider dusting off your resume.
When did we stop believing in people? Yes, millions of people have caught the Tebow train and that is wonderful. Gives the country something to cheer about, someone to cheer for when others refuse to believe in the impossible.
I would encourage you to do two things today.
Find an underdog that you can identify and make them aware that you believe in them. Find someone, whether you know them personally or not, and take the time to make them aware you are supporting them, either in an email, phone call, handwritten note, Facebook, text, face to face, something.
And I would ask that you also write John Elway and encourage him to let Tim go as well. Here’s the address:
Mr. John Elway – Denver Broncos Football Club 13655 Broncos Parkway Englewood, Colorado 80112
This morning I received some valuable feedback on my blog from an established author, columnist and very high level public relations executive. He emailed me and said he liked the direction I was taking. He suggested I make the blog a little less spiritual and I told him I would try. Then this happens. Dick, I honestly tried.
What is going on in Denver is so the story of David and Saul from the Old Testament. John Elway is the king of Denver and then here comes this young, upstart non-experienced giant killer. He begins to lead the troops into battle and wins and wins and wins, and the people take up this cheer,
“John Elway has killed his thousands, Tim Tebow his tens of thousands.”
That was my translation of Old Testament writ by the way. After that happened in Saul and David’s life, Saul was soon to be wrapping up his reign.
Overstating this? Absolutely. But my gosh, this is where I really get mad, but my gosh, does it take a lot of effort to encourage another person, to bring them Hope as it has been given to you as well?
Find someone, encourage them in their insurmountable odds. You will immediately see the difference.
