Tim Tebow Wants a Wife With a ‘Servant’s Heart’

Football player Tim Tebow (he was on the Denver Broncos and has since been traded to the New York Jets) is interviewed in this month’s issue of Vogue. Although he doesn’t land himself on the cover, he does get a photoshoot (an image from which you can see here) and a headline calling him Superman. In the interview, Tebow says that he would like to get married someday, and that he wants a woman with a “servant’s heart.” Um, what?

Though it might sound like sexism, the “servant’s heart” thing is pretty common in evangelical Christianity. Michelle Duggar has described several of her daughters this way, and it’s considered an ideal state of being for a devoted Christian wife. It comes from Deuteronomy 28:47: “Because you did not serve the Lord your God with joyfulness and gladness of heart, because of the abundance of all things, therefore you shall serve your enemies whom the Lord will send against you, in hunger and thirst, in nakedness, and lacking everything.” In other words, Tebow wants a woman who is using her heart to serve God, not to serve him. Do we think Katy Perry fits that description? Or perhaps Taylor Swift?

    Is anyone else thinking maybe someone needs to introduce him to the Duggar girls?

    I thought in America we didn’t breed those anymore. Maybe he can import one from India.

    Maybe he can buy himself a child bride from Afghanistan or some other theocracy.

      If you are going to be an idiot who has nothing constructive to offer, tis better to not type.

    Actually, Christian women are brought up to serve god AND their husband. So yes, he does want a wife who will serve and obey him because that type of patriarchy is “justified” by his religion.

      As a Christian woman, I am sad to see that so many people (including other Christians) don’t understand this… In a marriage a woman and a man must put God first and serve him first. If a man isn’t completely putting God first in a situation then that woman should follow God instead of her husband….if he is putting God first then they want the same things. Also love how no one ever seems to mention the rest of the scripture that states how the man should be….loving and never harsh….think of popular movie romantic male roles where Channing Tatum or Josh Hartnett are sweeping their women off their feet and treating them like gold! In a true Christian marriage, both partners get what they need from their partner and are truly happy…and both feel like equals working together for the same goals.

    He doesn’t mean a servant to him; he means to others. Just like he is. To serve others. GOOD GRIEF people
