Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

Today we honor a man who made a difference.

A man of influence and leadership and passion.

A man most notable for being a change agent.

A thinking man.

A man who counted the cost and was willing to pay the price for equality between the races.

Martin Luther King, Jr., a man who loved God, who sought to live a Christlike life, and follow God’s will and calling on his life, no matter what.

And it’s for that I honor him today.


MLK quote



The Lord God has told us
what is right
    and what he demands:
“See that justice is done,
let mercy be your first concern,
    and humbly obey your God.”

Micah 6:8 CEV


Regardless of philosophies or politics… we can choose to be reminded of what really makes a difference.

It usually comes down to what we do… or don’t do. 

I needed that reminder today… you too?

    A long time ago, I read a line somewhere that so moved me (one of those quotes I love to instill in my children): “All it takes for hate to prevail in this world is for one good man to do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING”. We all CAN make a difference.
