Today we honor the life of Martin Luther King Jr. and his mission to achieve equality for all people. Dr. King's message of peace and justice applies to us all. It’s an echo of Christ’s commandment for us to love one another. This national holiday is a time to review our history and reflect on valuable messages that are still meaningful today.
In a speech on February 4, 1968 Martin Luther King Jr. shared thoughts deriving from Matthew 23:11..
Martin Luther King Jr.
Indeed, we are all capable of greatness because we can serve. How will you serve today?
If you’re struggling to get started in service we encourage you to listen with love. Hearing the call for help is a motivating force, sometimes we are just too preoccupied to hear it. Be intentional today to drop your worries, to shed fear, and to listen for those in need around you.
1 John 4:20 NIV
It's important for everyone to feel heard. If we don't listen, how can we hope to know how to love and serve them?
Let’s work together today, and everyday, to be God’s hands in blessing the world.
