Walk an Extra Mile

We have an aide during the day since both Loretta and I are on walkers.  I gave her a paid afternoon off on Sunday, and that emboldened her to ask for Thursday afternoon off too.  I said yes, but she’d forfeit her tip.  She took it.

I try to be fair, but I don’t like being taken advantage of.  But the words of the Lord are precious: when he says give away your cloak even after you’ve given away your shirt, I take that for a command.

Admittedly I don’t always understand what he means; times have changed.  But I do my best.  May the Holy Spirit guide me.
