Okay, I just became a Bubba Watson fan. Not just because of that famous shot on the second playoff hole (the tenth hole at Augusta) and not simply because he won the Masters Championship.
I became a Twitter follower of @bubbawatson when I saw his tweet after the Masters: 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
If you’re not on Twitter, you might want to consider. For example, you can follow me @waylonbailey, but you might really want to follow Bubba and other believers who are unashamed to share their Christian faith.
Every person on Twitter has a profile. Here’s Bubba Watson’s: @bubbawatson: Christian. Husband. Daddy. Pro Golfer. Owner of General Lee 1.
The order of everything is important. Notice the order of Bubba Watson’s profile.
For all of us, our order should be something like Bubba’s.
Watson uses his platform as a golfer on the PGA Tour and his magnetic personality–he is also the longest hitter in golf–to share his faith in Christ. He says it this way: “For me, it’s just showing the Light.”
Watson’s Tweet before his third round: The most important thing in my life? Answer after I golf 18 holes with @JustinRose99. #Godisgood. Later that day: Most important things in my life- 1. God 2. Wife 3. Family 4. Helping others 5. Golf.
By the way, do you want to know why he uses a pink driver and wore white with pink yesterday at the Masters? He’s auctioning his wardrobe and other items to use to help for reconstructive surgery for children with physical defects or disabilities. He’s doing this through a group called Fresh Start.
When he won the Master’s yesterday, I saw something I had never seen before–not the part about a man crying over the Masters–that’s happened a lot. The part that I have never seen was the other PGA Tour players who hugged Bubba Watson with true joy. I knew then that this was something special.
Here’s the part that you and I need to remember. We can touch people’s lives every day. We don’t have to win a tournament. We simply have to show up every day. Show up in your kid’s lives, show up at home, and show up at work. Give your best for God every day.
Good Friday and Easter Sunday should be how we live and worship each day of our lives.
“Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven” (Matthew 5:16).
