“Underdog, I wince every time I say the word, especially in connection with Jesus. Yet as I read the birth stories about Jesus, I cannot help but recognize that although the world may be tilted toward the rich and powerful, God, hallelujah, is tilted toward the underdog.” Audio Adrenaline -Underdog (based on a quote by Philip Yancey.)

It’s true you know. Jesus with all the power of the universe came here looking like an underdog. He came humbly. He came poor. He came as a baby, just like the rest of us. Why is it then, that so often we believe the best way to serve Him is to gain riches and worldly wealth? I’m not saying there is anything wrong with wealth and if you (or I) are blessed by God wealth and power, my prayer is that we would use it responsibly, to His glory. Wealth and power are not prerequisites or Godly world change, as a matter of fact Jesus seems to say they can be detrimental. The best way to serve God well is not wealth, it’s faithfulness. Use what you have today to serve Him. He will provide what you need. Please remember, Jesus only looked like an underdog. In Him, the same is true of you.
