Florida quarterback Tim Tebow wears Bible verse Mark 8:36 written on his eye black during their 56-6 victory over Troy at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium in Gainesville, Fla.
Mark 8:36 (NIV) says "What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul?"
Last week, Tebow wrote Proverbs 3: 5-6 on his eye black inspired by a young girl on the Gator Walk prior to the game as she held a sign with the verse on it. He stopped and spoke with the girl and her family and was moved by her message.
The passage is as follows: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.”
