It's absolutely true. It can border on idolatry this time of year. No kidding.
We have brackets posted outside my office. My brothers and I play. Our mom is in on the deal. Several folks at church are in too.
I love how Florida Gulf Coast is destroying brackets everywhere. Even though I picked them, I (kinda) like it that Gonzaga went down to a really good and crazy hot Wichita State team. I love it that the guard from Ohio State jacked a 3 right in a guy's grill to win the game.
Little schools making their mark. Little guys making their mark. Little things making their mark.
Like a little leaven that works its way all the way through the lump of dough. Like a little mustard seed that produces a plant that even birds can nest in. (Try on for size Matthew 13.31-33)
That's what the Kingdom is like. Seemingly small. Overlooked and outmatched. But irrepressible. Unstoppable. Unmanageable. Like March Madness.
But that's just me thinking thoughts...
