NFL quarterback Tim Tebow is famous for celebrating his Christian faith. On Sunday, June 17th, Tebow delivered a Father's Day talk at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, CA. Tebow shared the stage with David Jeremiah, pastor of the Shadow Mountain Community Church of El Cajon, CA. (See www[dot]shadowmountain[dot]org)
Tebow and Jeremiah spent much of their talk discussing faith, Jesus, and sports. However, at the 19:37 mark, Jeremiah called men to be "spiritual leaders" in the home. Sound familiar?
"There's one more thing that I think we need to talk about, because a lot of Christian guys here today, and I think one of the burdens we ought to have as men of God is that all of us as men step up to the plate and be the spiritual leaders in our family. There's so many today that think that, you know, that kind of stuff is for the woman, that's for the wife. I've actually had guys say, 'no, my wife takes care of that.' Well, she can't take care of it because she can't have the influence on your son. You're the only one who can, and a lot of times people say, 'why do these kids drop out of church when they get to be 13 or 14?' Many do so because they don't see their own fathers following through on their faith."
