Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 2017 January 16

“But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel; And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams” (Acts 2:16-17)

Today’s Morsel:  I like listening to people share some of their dreams.  But are we supposed to be sharing our dreams with others, or are we supposed to be pondering on them to see how they apply to our lives and waiting for them to come to fruition?  Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is not only known for leading the “Civil Rights Movement” in the 60’s, but also his famous “I Have A Dream” speech.  This was the public speech delivered by him during the march on Washington for jobs and freedom on August 28, 1963, in which he called for an end to racism in the United States and called for civil and economic rights.  In so many ways, his dream has come true.  Today, more churches and businesses are multi-racial.  Doors of opportunities are open to all. Public buses are no long segregated.  Our military and schools offer racial equality.  People of different races are marrying.  Children of all races now play and eat together.  What Dr. King dreamed, was what God desired all along.  And that is that His people would realize that He (God) is no respecter of persons and that we should do unto others as we would have them do unto us.

Sing: No more shackles, no more chains, no more bondage, I am free!

Thought For Today:  And ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.
