Waterboys Too

Would you rather play first string on a losing team or second string on a winning team? (Serendipity Bible Fourth Edition, page 105).

Clearly if the cause is worthy and I am not intentionally trying to sabotage an unworthy cause, the preferable choice is for me to play second string on a winning team. Perhaps it is even the case that (in the first part of the question) our team came to lose because I insisted on playing first string when rightly I should have played second.

I'm sure that many in the church of Christ are like me. We are certain that we are on the winning team, but must admit that we often play second string. That is not a regret due to our certitude that God has ordered things as they should be.  It is only important that we prayerfully do our best and ask God to place and use us as he would.
