Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. lived this quote. He was fearless in the face of an ever present danger. He railed against the system, but never showed rancor. Yes, he showed anger, but he never disrespected people. He did not demonize his opposition, but he tried to bring those who opposed him to his way of thinking. It is amazing to see what he achieved and in inspired in his short lifetime. He had a dream but he can not simply be relegated to the role of a dreamer. He was a man of faith who knew faith without works is dead faith. He fulfilled his purpose, but we are left here with work to do. We can not wax poetic about his works that would be a disservice to the legacy. We to stop merely observing life’s ills, but seeing how we can change the people in our world. We probably will not stand on the big stage like Dr. King, but if we stand on our personal podiums and do the work we all can help change the world.
Do you think Dr. King could be heard in our society?
