Tim Tebow is an evangelical icon. Christian young people read his books, buy his jersey, and flock to his games. It is the evangelical sports fans that cause ratings and readership to rise every time he is featured in a game or a story. Countless churches, Christian gatherings, and evangelical leaders have traded on his name and presence in order to draw crowds and media attention. Our sons want to be like him and our daughters want to marry him. But now Tebow is under serious attack.

I am a Louie Giglio fan. Ever since I first heard him preach in a field outside of Memphis in 2000, I have been moved by his creativity, stirred by his love for the God of the Scriptures, and encouraged by his passion to see young people rise up and make a difference in the name of Jesus.

Opportunity Cost is simply the "cost" of making choices. If you spend your money on item A, you will have less money to spend on item B. If you hire employee A, you may give up the opportunity to hire employee B. If you take job A, you won’t simultaneously be able to also take job B. Whatever opportunity you give up when you make a choice is the opportunity cost of that choice.

Tiger Woods has spent his entire life in the public eye. His Dad, Earl Woods, identified his special talent for golf when Tiger was very young. And it was Earl Woods that recognized early on that Tiger’s racial heritage would combine with his extraordinary abilities to give the budding star unprecedented influence in a world that values sports and entertainment. "He is the Chosen One," Earl once told Sports Illustrated. "He'll have the power to impact nations. Not people—nations. The world is just getting a taste of his power.”
