A man stopped every morning to pick up a newspaper at a small grocery store. One morning when he arrived at work, the man found that by mistake he had taken two newspapers instead of one. He got in his car, drove back to the store, and returned the paper. About a week later, the shop owner discovered that someone had stolen money from the grocery store. When police pinpointed the time it occurred, the grocer remembered only two people being in the store at the time, and one was the man who had returned the paper. The grocer immediately dismissed the man as a suspect, saying, “That man is really honest. He came all the way back here just to return a newspaper he took by mistake.” The police then focused their investigation on the other man, who soon made a full confession.

Jesus said, "Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven” - Matthew 5:16. Some would say that the man went to way too much trouble for such a small amount of money. But isn't that what made him different from the ordinary? It's the willingness to go the second mile that will set you apart (Matthew 5:41). Come and learn of the God who will teach you of the extra-ordinary life!
