Matthew 5:41

And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.

 

Jesus instructed His followers to offer no resistance to an evil person. If they were slapped on one cheek by someone, they were to turn the other side also. If they were sued for their inner garment, they were to surrender their outer garment as well. If an official compelled them to carry his baggage for one mile, they were to voluntarily carry it two miles. We are to go beyond what is expected, as that is what Jesus would do and what He expects of us.
