A Christmas wish for Tiger

Tiger Woods is undoubtedly one of the wealthiest persons in our country and likely the greatest golfer of all time.

With all his wealth and fame, something is still missing. One could tell from the many times the TV captured his taking the name of the Lord in vain after he hit a bad shot that God was not relevant to him and his recent escapades show us that his life was not fulfilled.

Followers of Jesus Christ, though not rich nor famous in the world's eye, can know that we have value and are rich and famous in God's eyes because He sacrificed Himself so that we can spend eternity with Him.

Jesus said in John 10:10 that He came so that we could have an abundant and meaningful life. My prayer is that through these times of trouble, Tiger will find true fulfillment through salvation in Jesus. What a wonderful Christmas gift that would be for us all.
