Matthew 5:40-42

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.
(NIV)


This life should not be about self-preservation. I know that we talk about how there are those people out there that would say things like, "I am looking out for number 1!" We envision this almost like it is some kind of after-school special. We think of these verses as if they would apply when this exact thing happens. But I don't even wear a cloak (I am not for sure I know what a tunic is...). But try to apply them to your life today.
