Are you willing to go the second mile?

“Do your work with your whole heart and you will succeed – there is so little competition.”

Elbert Hubbard

One of my favorite verses from the New Testament is Matthew 5:41-42. Here Jesus is teaching that when one is pressed into work, you are to do so beyond the minimum commitment (in those times, this was one mile carrying a heavy load) and go the second mile. Can you imagine how few people are willing to DOUBLE the required effort and do so willingly? No wonder there is so little competition along the second mile. 

‘If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles.’ Matthew 5:41
