A friend shared this some quotes from Dr. Martin Luther King’s last Sunday morning sermon, delivered on March 31, 1968. And you would think he was talking about our world today, a world connected. A world of extremes. A world of discontent. A world of cacaphony. A world where we don’t have time to listen to anyone. A world divided.
“Through our scientific and technological genius, we have made of this world a neighborhood and yet… we have not had the ethical commitment to make of it a brotherhood. But somehow, and in some way, we have got to do this. We are tied together in the single garment of destiny, caught in an inescapable network of mutuality. And whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly. For some strange reason I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. And you can never be what you ought to be until I am what I ought to be. This is the way God’s universe is made; this is the way it is structured.”
We will be foolish to not pay attention to his words.
