We love them.We cheer for them on the field, at the races, and in the rinks. From the 1976 comedy film The Bad News Bears to recent films like Secretariat, Facing the Giants, and The Blind Side, we flock to movies that tell their stories.We love it when a nobody with unrecognized potential edges out the front-runners and captures the prize.

It’s no surprise, really, that Americans love underdogs.We were, for many years, a nation of underdogs. The pilgrims, sailing from Holland in search of religious freedom, were underdogs. Roger Williams championed the rights of underdogs when he settled the state of Rhode Island and provided a safe haven for people of all religions. And Americans joined underdogs like Denmark and England to fight the Nazi war machine.

I think it’s safe to say God likes underdogs, too.The pages of scripture are dotted with examples of his love and care for them. He makes special provision for widows, orphans, and the poor. He bestowed a disproportionate number of miracles on those who were disabled.
