Former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow is starring in a new reality TV show on Fox which emphasizes the value of giving back to others.
According to CBN News, the show, called “Home Free,” is now in its second season. Contestants on the show compete with each other to build homes for heroes in their lives.
The contestants race down Homefree Blvd, building homes in the 11-lot neighborhood. The winner of the competition is rewarded with a dream home of his or her own.
One contestant built a home for a brother who she said raised her. Another contestant built a home for a man who saved his life while he was in Afghanistan.
Tebow and home improvement expert Mike Holmes encourage contestants as they work to complete the competition. Tebow said he loves being involved with the show because it emphasizes the value of giving and serving others.
"It's a great principle and it's something that I try to live as much as I can," Tebow told The Christian Post. "I think that in trying to be able to show America that it is a blessing to give and you do get more by giving than you do by just trying to take take take."
"Having the mindset of just serving other people is important," he continued. "Sometimes it doesn't always makes sense because people are like, 'Well, how am I just going to receive?' Well, receiving comes in a lot of different ways, whether that's receiving peace and fulfillment or purpose or calling, there's so many different things. Or it's just by receiving joy by making a difference in someone else's life, but I think the Bible says that for a reason and I believe it."
