Tony Dungy lives out Colossians 3:17

Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father
Tony Dungy’s “whatever” is to coach the Indianapolis Colts, who in case you missed it, won the Super Bowl tonight. They bested the gritty Chicago Bears 29-17 on a rainy Miami night.
Mr. Dungy is a devoted follower of Christ who unashamedly thanks God in very public forums. I know a lot of famous people do that but this man apparently lives it as well. To be an NFL coach who does not curse or belittle his players requires a special person. A person who is committed to following the Lord Jesus and doing “whatever” in His Name.
Coach Dungy’s son committed suicide last year and through it all Mr. Dungy remained steadfast that God had a plan within this tragic event. His courage in dealing with unspeakable loss inspired others who also lost their children.
Congratulations Coach for reaching the pinnacle of your profession and reminding those of us who’ve never met you, that it really is all about God.
