The Extra Mile

You know I have probably said it a million times, the most revolutionary relationship principle I think ever taught was walking the extra mile.

Absolutely. That’s not just doing what is expected, but doing something that goes beyond that.

Yeah, you walk the first mile just because you are a decent human being; the extra mile is something that catches people off guard.

Yeah, and in marriage it is so amazing to experience that; when your spouse goes the extra mile for you.

Yea, you can walk the extra mile in big ways, little ways, you know: taking out the trash, that’s the first mile.

And then not saying anything about it. Just doing it without being asked, that’s the extra mile.
