Jesus asks us to go over and above what others expect

If a soldier demands that you carry his gear for a mile, carry it two miles. Mat5:41. In the Roman days a soldier could order you to carry his equipment for one mile. Jesus says to go over and above as the blessing is in the second mile. When you go over and above what others expect of you,you reveal Jesus in your life. By being a blessing you reveal God’s heart through your actions. In a world where most want to do just enough, a heart to walk the second mile is scarce and will open up conversations and opportunities you would never have expected. Most people will do what they are told but very few will go beyond that. If you can live your life walking the second mile in all that you do,there is no telling what possibilities God will open up in your life. Praise God today that He has shown us a better way to live life though His Word,so that we can live in the abundant life He has for us.
