“Go the Second Mile”

“Go the Second Mile”



     Jesus, the Prince of Peace, tells us in

Matthew 5:41 –“And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him

twain.”   Going the second mile

requires unselfishness and meekness. (“Look not every man on his own things,

but every man also on the things of others.” 

Philippians 2:4). Peace is promised to the meek.  Psalm 37:11 says, “But the meek shall

inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of

peace.”(Matthew 5:5 The meek shall inherit the earth). There is a special blessing for those whose

strength is in meekness.

Application: When you are helping others is

adequate what Christ expects of us?
