Being a Champion

This week, Truffle celebrated his birthday (Hi Truffle! Happy Birthday!). The owners of one of Truffle's litter mates sent an email along with a picture of their dog winning a ribbon at a dog show.

That's not this picture, that's Truffle on the right. Isn't he handsome?
Truffle's owner wisely observed that maybe Truffle had those championship lines, but if he were a true show dog, most of his time would be spent with the handler, and not her. Instead, Truffle keeps the owner company, walks with her, and is a great companion at the beach (hi beach!).

Even though Truffle doesn't have the medals and ribbons to prove his ultra-fantastic blood line, he's still a champion.

Maybe we are not model thin, a member of Mensa or the Mayor of Kettlesville. That doesn't mean we are not important in God's economy. We can be a champion to the people in our lives, and even to those who are not in our lives. Invisible God uses us to show his love to others. Through Jesus, we are part of God's bloodline, even though we don't have ribbons and trophies to show for it. We are His and He is ours.
