|For in this wise, thou mayest collect time-and-a-half for overtime|
Jesus told the multitude, "If someone has thee go a mile with him, go two miles. For in this wise thou mayest collect time-and-a-half for overtime, plus a mileage allowance of twenty-five cents, not to mention the depreciation on your sandals. It all adds up."
"Nonviolence is a powerful and just weapon," said Martin Luther King. "It cuts without wounding and ennobles the man who wields it. It is a sword that heals. And if it doesn't work, you can always kick their butts later."
A poor man was driven to steal silverware from a priest. When apprehended by the police, he claimed the priest had given it to him. The police took the culprit back to the priest and asked, "Did you give this man your valuable silverware?" "Why, yes, I did," responded the priest without missing a beat. "And in fact," the priest stepped into the house and returned a moment later with two valuable silver candlesticks, "I wanted him to have these as well." He bonked the thief on the head with the candlesticks and knocked him down and said, "Now give me back my stuff then toss this crooked bastard in jail and throw away the key."
