There is a sign at the entrance of a great manufacturing plant that reads:
"If you are like a wheelbarrow - going no farther than you are pushed - you need not apply for work here."
The real beauty of Christian living lies in "the second mile."
Jesus talked at length to His followers that they were to be known by the beauty of going a little farther & consistent with His own teaching, He took the road to Calvary.
