Chapters 5 through 7 of the book of Matthew are also known as the sermon on the mount. Most of this sermon is about our relationships with each other and not about our relationship with God. One of the laws back in those days was an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. This was not a law for revenge but a law to limit the damage we did to each other. Jesus said instead of doing this, when someone takes your eye, you give them the other one too. There are three basic thoughts behind this. The first is the hellish thought which says you give evil for good. The second is the worldly thought which says you give evil for evil and good for good. The final thought is the heavenly thought which says to give good for evil. Revenge will make you do stuff you will regret for the rest of your life. There is a big difference between a two miler and a one miller A two miler gives good for evil. A one miler is someone who just does what is required of them. A two miler goes above and beyond and most of the time they are the ones who end up successful. Now, two milers aren’t very popular because they make the one milers look bad.
