The Extra Mile

I had a lot of New Year's Resolutions this year. Some are the usual ones that I make every January 1, like reading my Bible everyday and becoming a better steward of my health and time. But this time, I decided to add a special one: every month, I would focus on doing something that would benefit others.

For January, I decided I would try to 'go the extra mile', especially with my chores. I suspect that there have been times when my family feels that I try to find the way I can help the least. I do what I'm asked, but I don't do it as best as I can and I definitely don't do anything else!

What better year to change that than 2011? I figured, to keep myself accountable, that I would post my goal on this blog. That way, I have to do it. =)

Going the extra mile is...

1. Doing more than what you had to do.
2. Doing your extra tasks knowing that you might not get a reward, or even get noticed, but you do your best anyway.

Going the extra mile is not...

1. Avoiding the task you were asked to do in the first place by doing something else. Remember, 'obedience is better than sacrifice'.
2. Doing anything extra because you want to be thanked or given a reward.

I could use some company going the extra mile. Care to join me? =)

In Christ,

Princess Izori
