“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that. I have decided to stick to love…Hate is too great a burden to bear.”
Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day! While this is somewhat of a bank holiday I think it is TRULY a significant day to reflect on what we humans are capable of—both good and evil. I believe there is a constant battle in all of us between our human nature which is bent toward selfishness and the likeness of God in all of us that pushes us toward sacrificial love.
Today is a great day to look inside yourself and ask if you are fueling the light or fueling the darkness. Are you choosing joy or negativity? Servant-heartedness or selfishness? While we may not all fight epic battles for justice like MLK, God has a mission for you right where you are—will you step up and embrace the challenge to love and serve your family, neighborhood, community?
Who is one of your heroes and why do they inspire you?
