Celebrating a life short lived, a life well lived, and his mission was accomplished.
Thank the Lord for a man who made history, serving his fellow countrymen, peacefully. It is a privilege to be alive and celebrate such a great man who had a mountaintop experience. Moses was on the mountain with the LORD, Paul was in the desert of Arabia with Jesus. We too can have extraordinary experiences with the Lord.
It is easier to love than to hate- Love softens the heart, whereas hate hardens the heart. It is similar to having a merry heart (laughter) that does good like medicine, and a broken spirit (frown) dies the bones- it's a killer.
What a powerful statement, and a mouthful. Leaders who love money fall into a horrible trap because the love of money is the root of all evil. It lifts people with pride, and they become selfish, and it is all about them.
Martin Luther King Jr passed in 1968, fifty-six years ago. What are we doing to work toward the dream, or even to keep the dream alive?
A few years ago, some friends and I were blessed to be at the National Mall in front of this statute of Martin Luther King Jr, a man that was admired greatly by so many people. What a legacy of remembrance that shall never be forgotten!
