The Extra Mile

Jesus said, “If someone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles.” (Matthew 5:41; NIV). The “Extra Mile” mindset doesn’t just do the minimum required, but graciously exceeds all expectations. It’s the attitude which asks: “How can I help you?” and, having cheerfully served, ALSO asks: “Is there anything else I can do for you?” It’s a principle of integrity that seeks to do not just what is legally allowable, but also what is ethically right. It’s a disposition which not only patiently bears ill-treatment, but is kind and respectful to those who have ill-treated you. Go the extra mile today. It will take you farther along in life’s journey—be it personal, professional or spiritual.—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
