Alexia, thank you for giving me the gift of being your father. Before your mom and I ever met you, we loved you. I was so grateful when I saw the first glimpses of you on a black and white monitor and the doctor told us we were having a little girl. We prayed over you every day and dreamed of what our family would look like with you in it.
Although advanced technology may perform many functions of servants, it can never take the place of a servant’s heart. That kind of heart is found only in people. God gifts us for service in a variety of ways. Although our gifts may differ, we all have one thing in common—the need to maintain a servant’s heart in all we do, following the example of servanthood modeled by Jesus.
