A few years ago, in a college course I teach, a student who had scored 100% on every quiz asks me, “Uh, Professor Enis, are you going to allow us any extra credit opportunities?”
I’m thinking, “For real? Are you serious? You’ve earned a hundred on everything!”
This student desired to go above and beyond.
Isn’t that what God does for us?
God goes above and beyond. God gives us grace, even if we don’t deserve it. God gives us additional chances, even after we’ve messed over the last 222 chances God gave us.
