Fan in wheelchair asks Cam Newton for an autograph…you will not believe what he did…Jesus Daily
Cam Newton, a relatively controversial figure known worldwide for his exploits both on and off the football field, has suffered from a significant amount of public scrutiny. Many believe that he was paid to play football for his school (a violation) and criticize his father, a frequenter of daytime talk shows, who spoke of his son in ways that seemed in imply a certain degree of impropriety. Despite all the bad press, it never seemed to affect Cam. He continued to wow his fans and prove the critics wrong, falling just short of the title of Super Bowl Champion.
Considering the fame and fortune that often comes along with such an achievement, one might expect the young star to be concerned only with himself, caring little for those less fortunate. However, one would be wrong. This video shows a caring and softhearted Cam Newton who revels in the shared humanity and love of football, shown by his fans. You have to see it to believe it! Perhaps the old saying, “You can’t judge a book by its cover,” is true after all. Grab the tissues before you watch; their won’t be a dry eye in the house!
Dr. Tabor’s Three Lessons on Humility
1. Do Not Judge a Book by its Cover. A rather unoriginal and (perhaps) overused aphorism, but true none-the-less. We should not presume to understand the heart of someone we do not know. Only God knows the hearts of men. “Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts,” (Psalm 139:23).
2. Recognize that Every Person is made in God’s Image. Did you know that you were made in God’s image? You did? Well, did you know that the driver who cut you off on your way to work this morning was ALSO made in God’s image? Part of being human is recognizing the inherent value of every individual. Cherish the value that God has given every human being. “So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them,” (Genesis 1:27).
3. Treat Others How You Want To Be Treated. Another over used aphorism is the “Golden Rule.” This rule is “golden” because if you follow it, other moral behaviors will naturally follow. “So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets,” (Matthew 7:12).
