A Purpose Greater

Today, we remember a great man.

A man who stood up for justice.

A man who refused to resort to violence.

A man who rallied millions.

A man who paid with his life.

A man who changed our nation.

“Use me, God,” he once prayed. “Show me how to take who I am, who I want to be, and what I can do, and use it for a purpose greater than myself.”

We need more men and women like Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

We need more men and women who will seek God and submit all they are, all they want to be, and all they can do for the sake of a purpose greater than themselves.

Let’s not just remember him today and, tomorrow, remain unaffected.

Let’s be those men and women.

Our nation – our world – needs us.
