Dream On

Today is Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday. Most people recognize his "I Have a Dream" speech, or the first few lines anyway. But there are plenty of other speeches and letters that show his vision was deeply rooted in his life. In other words, he talked the talk and walked the walk.

I am so thankful that he stood strong against oppression to voice the dreams that God gave him. And that is one thing that everyone has in common. It doesn't matter how old you are, what color your skin is, or if you are male of female. God gives us all dreams that we should act upon in our lives. Sure, they may not be as epic as defeating racism. But they may mean big things to you, to your family or to your community. Every dream is important, so as cheesy as it sounds, keep dreaming. Don't give up. And let God use your dreams for the good of other people.
