Media @ New Hope CalgaryNCAA basketball, “March Madness” is an absolutely huge college sporting phenomenon. Why? And what in the world does this sporting event have to do with our spirituality?

16.8 seconds to go... a two point game... 10th seeded Davidson has the ball... the team is looking for an upset miracle... a last minute three pointer...
March 30th, 2008 game situation

“David defeated Goliath with a sling and a rock. He killed him without even using a sword.”
1 Samuel 17:50

“But God told Samuel, "Looks aren't everything. Don't be impressed with his looks and stature. I've already eliminated him. God judges persons differently than humans do. Men and women look at the face; God looks into the heart."
1 Samuel 16:7, MSG

"Take a good look at my servant.
I'm backing him to the hilt.
He's the one I chose,and I couldn't be more pleased with him.
I've bathed him with my Spirit, my life.
He'll set everything right among the nations.
He won't call attention to what he does with loud speeches or gaudy parades.
He won't brush aside the bruised and the hurt and he won't disregard the small and insignificant, but he'll steadily and firmly set things right.
He won't tire out and quit.
He won't be stopped until he's finished his work—to set things right on earth.
The prophet Isaiah re: the coming Messiah, 42:1-4

“People will come from east and west and north and south, and will take their places at the feast in the kingdom of God. Indeed there are those who are last who will be first, and first who will be last."
Jesus in the Gospel of Luke 13:29-31
