Be kinder than you have to be.

When Jesus told His friends to ‘go the extra mile,’ He meant that they should go farther than they had to. But He wasn’t just talking about walking and carrying a heavy pack.
He meant that we should show kindness because we WANT to . . . not because we HAVE to. We can choose to show MORE kindness than we have to, because we know the person is valuable. We know that they’re made in the image of God.  Remember . . . Be kinder than you have to be.
