Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 15 January 2019

The Dream

“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:  Today, we celebrate and honor a man who was willing to sacrifice for all Americans, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  Dr. King is not only credited for his many marches for equality and against racial injustice, but also for his ‘I Have A Dream Speech’ at the Lincoln Memorial, in August 1963.  What a great speech that should be read by all repeatedly.  Each year at this time, I am reminded why we must act to keep the dream alive.  And here’s why.  Because equality and justice are built when we work together, play together, and serve each other.  It helps us to resist and eradicate bigotry, disunity, and unrighteousness from our workplaces, military, schools, and communities.  We must continue to celebrate this day so that every generation will have knowledge of the progress we as a country have made and will live to make things better. And so that every generation will realize their role in keeping the dream alive.
Sing: My country 'tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing.  Land where my fathers died, land of the Pilgrims' pride, from every mountainside, let freedom ring.

Thought For Today: “Let Freedom Ring!”
