BATHOSYes we are all like Tiger Woods...to a certain degree that is. No most of us will certainly never play golf like Tiger but nonetheless we are all like Tiger. On Friday even if you don't care about the Tiger Woods saga you most likely listened or heard about his much anticipated public apology.
It's amazing how so many people even those who never watch golf are fascinated and intrigued with the personal life of Tiger Woods. I wonder though if perhaps some of these people are this way because well...we're all like Tiger.
If you didn't get to see/hear his public apology you could do so here. During his short apologetic speech he said this:
"I've had a lot of time to think about what I've done. My failures have made me look at myself in a way I never wanted to before."You see we're all like Tiger to the extent that, "we have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God." (Rom. 3:23). If some how we think that we are better than him or anyone else because we haven't done what he did we are comparing ourselves with someone we know that we can look favorable. Maybe at this point is when we really should be like Tiger and spend some time and think about what we've done, and perhaps look at ourselves in a way we never wanted to before.
Tiger Woods recently was dropped by Accenture one of his sponsors. This was the sponsor that ran an ad (watch it here) that said, "...we know what it takes to be a Tiger." People of course had much to say of these words after everything became public what Tiger had done.
But the reality is though as we have noted Accenture was actually right, "we know what it takes to be a Tiger", because we have all sinned, maybe not like Tiger but sinned nonetheless.
Though we are all like Tiger in this sense. I though don't believe in Buddhism I believe in Jesus Christ and praise Him for these words:
"If you confess your sins He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness." (1 John 1:9)So if I believe this text then...well I'm no longer like Tiger.
