“There are no traffic jams on the extra mile, ” Zig Ziglar.
Current action X _______ = Xtra
It’s more than a little bit more.
It’s a multiple. At times, eXponential.
The xtra mile is double, not just a few more feet.
Here’s the way Jesus put it…
Luke 29 If anyone slaps you on one cheek, offer him the other cheek, too. If someone takes your coat, do not stop him from taking your shirt.
Double the slap.
Double the loss.
Why is xtra so hard? Because it’s about humility. It means we forget about ourselves and give the best to others even if they are not in our circle. Even worse, even if they are rude and oppressive.
We’re probably ok with xtra to people we love, but people we don’t and who don’t love us? Well, that’s just odd, right?
That’s the true spirit of xtra.
