Matthew 5:41 – Going the Extra Mile

S – Matthew 5:41 “And if anyone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles.”

O – Jesus is teaching about loving our enemies.  If we are “forced” to serve someone, we should do more than what is demanded.

A – I don’t like being forced to serve.  Today, I want to look for the opportunity to love someone sacrificially and go the extra mile.

P – Lord, forgive me for my selfish heart. Give me eyes to see the opportunities You give me to go above and beyond in my love, especially when it is difficult.

Who do you need to go the extra mile with today?
