Inspirational Mondays - "Sacrifice"
Happy Birthday to a man who depicted such strength, courage, humility and most of all sacrifice. It is with great pride and honor that I get to type the name Martin Luther King Jr. A man with such a strong vision and who dared to believe in fairness and respect for all no matter the color of our skin.
Since this is such a special day, I was moved to find an inspirational message that touched on sacrifice and realizing the human spirit. Martin Luther King Jr was a man who reached out to the masses. He taught us how to stand up for your rights and realize that this world is way bigger than just ourselves. We each have a purpose in this world and to try to hinder anyone from meeting their potential isn't just wrong, it's an injustice to God's word.
This week's inspirational passage is...
"Dearest Jesus, help us to remember that whether we want to be or not, we are YOUR Ambassadors on earth. We are watched by the world. What the world experiences of your love, sincerity, and holiness is experienced through us. Help us to remember that when we reach out to someone, we are reaching for you. That when we speak to them, they are hearing you. That when we do neither, they feel as if you passed them by. Jesus, help us to be good ambassadors."
Enjoy your MLK Holiday but please don't forget the sacrifice that was made in order for us to celebrate this day.
Have a blessed and prosperous week everyone!
