The Personal Touch

  One day Lamar Hunt, the man who started the American Football League and owner of the  Kansas City Chiefs, came across his daughter’s Super Ball and was given the inspiration for the name of the Championship game between his upstart AFL and the Old Guard National Football League. 

“Why not, he wondered, “Call our championship game the Super Bowl?”  The name caught on quickly and thus, An American Tradition was born.  February 4 is the date for this years big game.  There is an interesting story behind one of the greatest players to play in the Super Bowl.  Jerry Rice was the longtime star for the San Francisco 49ers, considered one of the greatest receivers in the history of football; he played for the 49ers 15 years, 1985-2000.  He is a football legend and you would think he came from some legendary college team but he didn’t.  He played for Mississippi Valley State University, in Itta Bena, Mississippi a virtual unknown.

He was once asked, “Why did you attend a small, obscure university, like Mississippi Valley State University in tiny Itta Bena, Miss.?  Rice responded, “Out of all the big time schools (such as UCLA) to recruit me, MVSU was the only school to come to my house and give me a personal visit.”

The big time schools recruited through cards, letters, and advertisements, but only one came to meet him and showed Rice personal attention.  It makes a difference in this world to meet people eye to eye and

invite them to be a part.  As Jesus passed along the Sea of Galilee, the scriptures say, he saw Simon and his brother casting a net into the sea.  He approached them and invited them.  He went a little further and he saw two more brothers: James and John.  He went up to them extending the same invitation and they

followed.  It is the personal touch which attract us, is it not?  A shake of the hand and a personal touch-I believe it makes a difference!

How can we reach others for Christ in this New Year?

I believe we can do it by:

1. Meeting people where they are.

2. Personalizing our approach.

3. Finding our calling.
