Filipino boxing champ Manny Pacquiao and wife Jinkee came back from an Israel tour full of reflections on God's love and blessings. The revered boxing figure was so in awe of what they have seen and experienced on the trip that he cannot help but praise God.
Pacquiao took to his Instagram account to share various photos of his trip to Israel, each captioned with Bible verses about God's love and glory. In one of the pictures, the boxer has his arm around his wife while the Old City of Jerusalem served as their backdrop. The photo was captioned with, "Live your life in a way that your children and grandchildren will follow your example and that their lives will bring honor and glory to God. May God Bless you all."
In another picture, the Filipino boxer took a selfie and captioned how the place made him reflect on being obedient to God. Pacquiao wrote the site was where "Jesus taught the people every day." He added that the site reminded him of the importance of being faithful to God.
Another photo in these series of inspiring photos captioned with equally inspiriting messages showed him with his wife again. He captioned this with, "Because God is love, He gives us the opportunity to share His love to others. May God bless everyone and have a blessed day," he writes.
It was not only the boxer who was inspired by what Israel had to offer. Jinkee herself shared that she was impressed by the Garden Tomb on her Instagram account. Seeing the site made her reflect. She is so inspired she wants everyone to reflect with her. The Garden Tomb is an alternative site to the famous Holy Sepulchre for you to consider the Crucifixion and Resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. The Garden is a beautiful place in which you will discover several things that were all here on the night Jesus died and which match the accounts in the four Gospels. So here we ask you to open the Bible and see what it says about these vital Christian truths," she wrote.
While boxing seems to be the last thing on the champ's mind right now, the boxer's adviser, Michael Koncz, shared that Pacquaio might have already chosen his next opponent already. The adviser said that a decision from the boxer might be announced this week."We haven't had the chance to talk about it, but he promised me that we'll discuss it this week," Koncz was quoted saying by the Manila Bulletin.
