"And if someone wants to sue you and take your tunic, let him have your cloak as well. If someone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles. Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you." (Jesus, in Matthew 5:40-42 NIV)
[Jesus] looks today, as He
has ever looked, not for crowds drifting aimlessly in His track, but for
individual men and women whose undying allegiance will spring from their having
recognized that [Christ] wants those who are prepared to follow the path of
self-renunciation which He trod before them.
-- H. A. Evan Hopkin
