Today has been a big day in the news for Tim Tebow and Olivia Culpo. Apparently the two had been in a relationship and Olivia broke up with him because he was a virgin waiting for marriage. I have three thoughts that immediately come to my head.
First, this is sad. I feel so badly for Olivia Culpo. She does not understand what true love is and frankly is missing out on an amazing man. This tells me that she is not on the same page which leads me to my next point.
Why is Tim Tebow dating a girl like this in the first place? Yes, I respect him and know he is a fellow believer, but can I just say how it bothers me when men that claim to be Christians following the Lord say they want the marrying types, but go for the dating types. I am a first hand marrying type that can testify of this in my own life story. 2 Corinthians 6:14 says, “Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?”
It kills me that men who believe in God and want to live for Him are so distracted by the outer beauty of ungodly women that they think to themselves, “I can change her” or “She’s really not that bad.” Now, I am not trying to have a man-bashing session, because I know that 100% we as women do it too, but this seems to be a real problem in the Christian community. Why would Tim even consider dating a girl that poses nude and does underwear modeling? I have to say that if he would date the worldly woman, he is going to get the worldly woman. You reap what you sow.
Lastly, I am proud that he did not give into temptation. I will say it is honorable that Tebow stood his ground against former Miss Universe. I am sad that his life has to be publicized for everything he does, but I did want to take a moment and address this topic because it is so relevant to what is happening today.
