The second part of Jesus’ list gets us right down in the nitty gritty of moving this world toward a better place. It’s easy to want to just move into protective mode so we can live a happy, safe life and enjoy what we’ve worked so hard to achieve with our lives. Based on what Jesus says, that’s first mile living – not second mile living. That’s copying what everyone else in our world does. In some ways, it’s a self-centered life – a life that’s about ME and MINE? Is that even possible? According to Jesus’ clear teaching – it may be doable, but it doesn’t lead to the safety and happiness it promises.
