King Day!

It’s King day, so I thought it would be good to share some of his work.  I like these words he said.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.  – Martin Luther King, Jr.

I like that he sought to fight injustice with love and peace.  I think I also like them because they seem grounded in these words of John

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.  John 1:5

and maybe these

At the same time, it is a new commandment that I am writing to you, which is true in him and in you, because the darkness is passing away and the true light is already shining. Whoever says he is in the light and hates his brother is still in darkness. Whoever loves his brother abides in the light, and in him there is no cause for stumbling. But whoever hates his brother is in the darkness and walks in the darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes.  1 John 2:8-11 ESV

Shine your light today and do good!
