Katrina Does Not Spare Favre Family

National Football League star Brett Favre has experienced the effects of a fallen world in recent years. A good friend of his died in a car accident, his father died suddenly, his wife was diagnosed with breast cancer, and his wife’s brother died at a very young age after an accident. (Millions of dollars do not rid one of the effects of sin.) And now Hurricane Katrina has destroyed Favre’s mother’s home.

How is Favre handling all of this? “I’ve found myself over the last 24 hours a couple times saying, ‘Why me?’ Or, ‘Why of all places …”‘ Favre admitted. “As quickly as that thought pops in my head – and it probably pops in my head more than I’d like it to – I try to remind myself of the things to be thankful for, which there are a lot.”

  1. No, I would not classify Favre’s remarks as a “Christian witness.” Anybody can be thankful for material blessings.
