Thank You, MLK!

Today we pause and commemorate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. For those of us who grew up when Dr. King was alive, we remember well his non-violent stance toward injustice. He heard a clarion call inviting him to fulfill a compelling mission. Today the world is a much different place due to the tireless commitment and eventual martyrdom of Dr. King. He sacrificed his life for the freedom of the oppressed and his legacy lives on, not only among black people but others who suffer from injustices in our nation and world.
How do you handle the attacks of the enemy on your soul, your relationships, your very life itself? Are the injustices inflicted upon you, your family or your ministry as blatant as racism? Most of us can’t relate to such intolerance, but we can all relate to the challenges that come when we sense the attack of the opposition to all that befits a child of God.  Regardless of what you are facing today, the message is clear…violence begets violence. Therefore, always choose justice, mercy, humility, and peace.
“He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God,” Micah 6:8.
