Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. ~ 1 John 4:7
I remember being about 7 years old I bugged my cousin. I called her Martin Luther King because her birthday was the same day, (the 15th). Thankfully, she forgave me from my childish prank. Today, she is not only my cousin, but she is one of my dearest and best friends.
Today, as a nation, we celebrate the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This man used what he had inside of him and changed the course of this nation. He walked in love.
Without his walk, many laws may not have changed. Many opportunities may not have been. Honestly, it is difficult for me to imagine my life any different than what I am used to. Because Dr. King walked in his purpose, I never had to walk in his shoes.
Intentional love makes a difference in this world.
Dr. King, he changed a nation with intentional love. And Jesus Christ, He provided us life with intentional love through sacrifice. I have the same responsibility to walk in love.
Let us be intentional with our love and actions today. Enjoy your coffee and power up your day.
