Jamie prayed for Tim Tebow during every game during his Sophomore, Junior, and Senior years. She asked me to buy this book for her and she finished reading it in a few days. I am really enjoying it now, and wanted to share the following excerpt with you. It is about the 2008 Florida Gator football team, but it is just as appropriate for a family, congregation, or company.
“When you’ve got a core group that believes in the cause, shares the values and vision of the team, and is dying to win a championship, then you have the right chemistry to go all the way. Strong leaders encourage you to do things for your own benefit, not just theirs. And with the right kind of encouraging, equipping, passionate and visionary leadership, the people w\ho are still sitting on the fence will eventually get off and start working hard, …or they will quit. Either way the result is good for the team. That’s because the team is now left with only members who are all pulling together in the same direction, believing in the vision, and willing to do whatever it takes to achieve it.” Through My Eyes (p 167),Tim Tebow.
