The Extra Mile

walk

I’ve 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.

 

You kind of walk the first mile because you’re a decent human being.

 

That’s right, most of us do.

 

The extra mile is something that catches people off guard.

 

In marriage it is amazing to experience when you spouse goes the extra mile for you.

 

You can walk the extra mile big ways, little ways. Taking out the trash is the first mile.

 

Then not saying anything about it, just doing it without being asked.

 

That’ s the extra mile.
