Martin Luther King Day 2014

 
From Martin Luther King’s “Loving Your Enemies” Sermon taken from Strength to Love copyright 1963. “An even more basic reason why we are commanded to love is expressed explicitly in Jesus’ words, ‘Love your enemies . . . that ye may be called children of your Father which is in heaven.’ We are called to this difficult task in order to realize a unique relationship with God. We are potential sons of God. Through love that potentiality becomes actuality. We must love our enemies, because only by loving them can we know God and experience the beauty of his holiness. “
