Dreams, Success & MLK

I think Dr. Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. would be delighted with how far our nation has come since his assassination. And, he would probably say, we've got a ways to go. But we have come far.

There was a breakfast this morning at which Pastor Efrem was at with several other leaders including keynote speaker Colin Powell. They showed part of it on PBS Kids. Colin Powell shared part of King's speech that talked about a new definition of success. He used Jesus' words that the greatest among us is the servant. That leveled the playing field for everyone. Anyone can be successful by that definition. Success no longer has various definitions: your title, how much money you make, your accolades, etc. In God's eyes, success is based solely on if you give yourself away to others. Anyone can do that; everyone should.
