"We do not see things as they are; we see them as we are"
- Anais Nin
He was a great man, he stood u for what was right in a time where it was not popular. Powers that be kill great men. They destroy them to preserve their own greatness. Good men stood up in the FOC, they stood up for Gods word, and they've been destroyed by their family and friends. Evil will always maintain power, and good men will always suffer for good. That is the cross to bear, not human sacrifice.
Some great quotes (and obviously very timely). I will file them away to use at an appropriate moment.
Thank you for sharing this Suzi. I especially love the last one - The time is always right to do what is right. Those are truly words to live by. Thank you!
It is wonderful to read Martin Luther King Jr.'s exact words! That says just about everything we need to know of him.
These are great, and not just for today. In fact, we need to be better at remembering these gems throughout the year.
I grew up witnessing the life and time of this man. I have all these years felt that MLK Jr was the prophet sent by God for this era and the coming age, and there has been nothing to indicate that this isn't possible. As was true for so many biblical prophets, he was ridiculed and hated in his own country (for example, author Phillip Yancey recalls that members of his boyhood church commonly referred to him as "Martin Lucifer Coon" during his years of ministry and activism), his message was for the salvation of the lost and the oppressed in accordance with the will of God, and his life came at a price paid with his own blood.
