The Extra Mile


The Bible talks about someone (an enemy soldier perhaps) that demands you to carry his pack for him. The Bible says to carry it an extra mile. In the Bible Christ adds "I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished." The Bible's point is we have not complied with the law, we all fall short.

But as a side point; if an extra mile is the correct measure with a demanding enemy, how should we deal with our friends, employees, and customers?

Many in business run into hard times and have to cut back. If that is the case explain it to those effected, let them know what is required, and if it is temporary.

Sadly some businesses get in the habit of cutting, and continue in better times; cutting what they perceive to be fat, when in reality it is the meat and bone of their business.

Try the other route.

Give more than is expected.

Put a bit extra in, have the extra service available, be quick with a smile.

You go back to where you had a good experience. You would like to work where they treat you with respect. It is a pleasure to have friends and family involved in your life.

Go the extra mile.

Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
