In addition to retweets of the baptism, Dallas Cowboys linebacker Justin March-Lillard (@Bubba_March) is quick to tweet about his faith.
Put into perspective that you can’t get a single second of your life back. Also put into perspective that life is not promised to anyone. – don’t waste it. “You have a purpose” just embrace it🙏🏾
