Several months ago, I took a tour of the beautiful AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The tour guide told the group how the vision of the stadium came into fulfillment. He said that the owner, Jerry Jones, told the architect that every seat should have an unobstructed view of the playing field. The architect complied with his request by supporting the roof with an arch. By designing the stadium in this way, there would be clear visibility of the entire field. Jerry seemed to want everyone attending the game to have a wonderful experience. He was not content to merely use conventional and less expensive construction. How thoughtful this was for all who would come to see the games! Jerry Jones was going the extra mile in building a stadium for the enjoyment of every customer!
The Bible records a time when the disciples asked the Lord to increase their faith (Luke 17:5-10). He shared with them the parable of the servant. He encouraged His followers not to be like the servant who only did what was required of him. Jesus inferred that their faith was increased by doing more than what is required. Go beyond the requirement and do something extra!
My heart is to do more than see you in a meeting. I look forward to talking with you on the phone and praying with you. You are special to the Lord and special to me. Together, we will go the extra mile in strengthening our relationship with each other and our relationship with the Lord!
Yours in Christ,
