Jesus said, “If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles.”
~ Matthew 5:41
Going beyond what is expected is what “Second Mile” is all about. In Jesus’ day a Roman soldier could force you to carry his pack for one mile and no more. What Jesus is telling us is we need to serve people joyfully beyond that first mile – beyond what is required or expected of us. The first mile is out of obligation, the second mile is out of love. Let us find ways to demonstrate the same “Second Mile” love Jesus showed to us.
Let us create a culture of care and be willing to go the “Second Mile.”
Are you ready to take the challenge and become a “Second Mile” follower of Jesus? Do you know someone who demonstrates this kind of “Second Mile” love toward others? You can fill out the form below and request a Team RFC Second Mile wrist band to wear as a reminder. We will also include a card that you can use to share with others what “Second Mile” means. You can also nominate someone else and recognize them for going the “Second Mile.”
There is no charge for these, but if you would like to make a donation to help us continue to help spread the message of the “Second Mile” love Jesus both demonstrated and entrusted to us to share with the world, it would be much appreciated.
God Bless and Live Life to the “Second Mile” and Beyond,
