As you know today, we honor Martin Luther King’s birth. He was a great visionary, who had the fortitude to not only proclaim his dream but to stand up for his dream in the face of great opposition. He didn’t allow his current reality to block his view of a better tomorrow. The voice of the naysayers did not silence him from voicing what he hoped for future generations. Neither bombs nor prison bars could hold his dream hostage.
While our dream may not be of the same magnitude as Dr. King, God has given each of us a dream—a picture of what our future can be. And in order to bring that dream into fruition, it will require that same tenacity and fortitude. Everyone will not agree with our dreams and others will outright oppose it but we must be willing to press forward any way.
