    Tim Tebow Wants a Wife with a Servant’s Heart, But What Does That Mean?

    Tim Tebow recently described his future wife, saying he wanted her to have a servant’s heart. Well, lots of the media went nuts, assuming he meant he wanted a “hot Stepford” wife to serve his every need. But that’s not what he meant. Christians who are familiar with scripture know this means he’s looking for a wife who’s giving, kind and charitable to others. He’s looking for a true Christian.

    But you shall not be so: but he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger; and he that is chief, as he that does serve. For whether is greater, he that sits at meat, or he that serves? is not he that sits at meat? but I am among you as he that serves (Luke 22:26-27).

    I find the outrage interesting because it demonstrates how Christians often are misinterpreted or made out to be chauvinistic.

    Scripture is clear in its teachings. Christ has certain expectations of us, especially when it comes to dealing with others. We are not only asked to follow Christ, but also to emulate Him.

    As we all know, Christ always served others. He washed the feet of His disciples, and so we too are called to perform humble servanthood. We are called to serve our master. And our master is Christ. In serving others, we ultimately are serving Christ.

    For even the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve, and to give his life a ransom for many (Mark 10:45).

    We need to be servants to others, by ways of ministering to and for them. But in doing so, there are certain expectations of us.

    Someone with a servant’s heart serves selflessly. If our desire to serve others is founded upon the need to be praised or recognized, then we’re defeating the purpose of service. When servicing others, we’re giving to others without expecting something back. So whether it’s receiving praise or feeling powerful, if our ultimate goal is to please ourselves, then our actions are not real service.

    When serving, we Christians should serve humbly. We should do it without making the person or people we serve feel unworthy or ashamed. We are all in need of service at one time or another, so in giving to one person, another person may give to you. It’s not about giving to receive or giving because you received.

    We must also serve graciously, gratefully and without complaint. Because anything less would not be service.

    We’ve covered Tim Tebow a lot on this site, and let’s face it, he has a servant’s heart. His desire to marry someone who will equally serve makes perfect sense. They need to share the desire to please Christ by serving Him, each other and others. When a husband and wife understand their role as Christ’s servants, their marriage ultimately is strengthened.

    PI ladies, do you want your future spouse to have a servant’s heart? Do you believe you have a servant’s heart?
