Matthew 5:41 “And whoever compels you to go one mile, go with him two.” (NKJV)
You get paid when you do what you’re paid for effectively. You get paid at the end of the month or week as agreed, but then there is something that can make you a fortune.

Luke 2:47 “And all that heard him were astonished at his understanding and answers.”
Jesus, his parents and other people from his town had travelled to Jerusalem for the customary feast. They all went, did the ceremony successfully and then returned to base, except the young lad called Jesus…
