From Tim Tebow to Joe Gibbs,
We see them score and win a race,
the finger raised pointing to heaven.
But who’s side are you really on, God?
Who are your rooting for from the stands?
“The poor – I want them to have good news.
The brokenhearted – I want to give them healing.
The prisoners, the oppressed, the losers, those in distress.”
The Lord smiles as he says it.
“I am the God of Jacob. I root for the underdog.”
So should we.
