I am thankful for those who have given themselves for the betterment of others. I have been blessed to have relationships with people who championed causes. The thing about those men and women is that they lived their heart. They put into practice the change and effect they longed for.

Today, many will paste quotes and speeches as a way to mark the day honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Great! But instead of just pasting quotes and videos, lets live with passion and sacrifice so that the generations that follow will have heroes and pursuits that are worthy of following. Not that we lift ourselves, but rather we lower ourselves as servants of King Jesus. Let's not limit the impact of those like Dr. King to one day, but rather each day live fully engaged in the will of God.

I have friends like Dr. Al B. Sutton, who continue the practice of proclaiming hope and change in places like Birmingham Alabama. Dr. Sutton's ministry continues pursuing equality and relationship among rich and poor, black and white, educated and uneducated. Each day he has to live that desire. Let's join that. So go ahead and paste your quote. But then don't forget to live that quote today, tomorrow and the next day!
