Luke 5:41: And whoever compels you to go one mile, go with him two. Give to him who asks you, and from him who wants to borrow from you do not turn away.
Infinity is supposed to be the beginning of the never ending END. However, Buzz wanted to go to Infinity and BEYOND! He wasn’t convinced that infinity was the end. Now THAT is going the extra mile.
Successful people think the same way. They see endings as beginnings. They see problems as challenges. They see hard work with the coming rewards. And when you look at their lives, you’ll see that they are always giving back physically and financially. While the rest are holding on for dear life to what little we have. Let it go!
Many a pastor has said that they never saw a U-Haul behind a hearst. You can’t take it with you, but you can change lives with what you have in the here and now.
Young children often say, “MINE, MINE, MINE!” Are you still living in that realm of thinking? Life is not really ours you know, it’s lent to us for a time by THE GIVER of life. Don’t put your trust in the gift. Put your trust in the GIVER.
John Gardner said, "When people are serving, life is no longer meaningless." You're not called to 'get by,' you're called to go to “Infinity and beyond!”.
