Going Mile Two

And Jesus said:
If anyone wants to sue

your socks off and take away your tunic too, then hand over your coat, your cloak, your robe, your cape,
your fake fur, and definitely that denim jacket with tarnished silver studs. Who knows? Eventually they
might realize they did not get your angora collar.

If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two

and while you’re walking together on The Way, give them whatever else they ask, and don’t turn away
from the one who wants to borrow, borrow from you. Who knows which tomorrow will bring you a
cloak of sorrow or remind you of your own dire neediness?
