Celebrating the Legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was an African American minister and a civil rights activist who advocated for justice and equality for all people. Dr. King wanted the citizens of our nation and all over the world to understand the power and beauty of social equality for all people. A man of God, Dr. King promoted his vision of equality through peace and nonviolence. Below are 2 scriptures said to be amongst Dr. King’s favorites:
James 2:2-4 For if a man wearing a gold ring and fine clothing comes into your assembly, and a poor man in shabby clothing also comes in, and if you pay attention to the one who wears the fine clothing and say, “You sit here in a good place,” while you say to the poor man, “You stand over there,” or, “Sit down at my feet,” have you not then made distinctions among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts?
Zechariach 7:9-10 — “Thus says the Lord of hosts, ‘Render true judgments, show kindness and mercy to one another, do not oppress the widow, the fatherless, the sojourner or the poor, and let none of you devise evil against another in your heart.’”
As we remember Dr. King, and celebrate his life as a day of service, let us be a light in someone’s life through the love of Jesus: helping at a homeless shelter, helping a neighbor, doing a neighborhood clean up or visiting those who are homebound. Dr. King worked diligently and tirelessly to advocate for equality and justice for ALL of God’s children.
