Colored eggs. They each have a rich and uniquely colored shell, but on the inside they hold the exact same lovely yolk. ➕
It’s a great lesson when I teach my children about Martin Luther King Jr., his ministry, and his life. It is certainly to be celebrated and understood; that we love everyone, no matter their race, their religion, their sexuality, their weight, their anything.....because at the end of the day, we are all HUMAN. ➕
I strive to teach my children to love everyone. To be sympathetic. To have ears to hear hurts. Eyes to see where there is need. Hands that serve and hearts that understand that we are all equal and equally loved by our Creator.
But even more than that, I hope to teach them that loving people isn’t enough. We must stand up for injustice wherever we find it. We must never be afraid to use our voices to speak truth boldly and with courage, and to show compassion for the broken, the hurting, and the marginalized.
Choose love. Choose courage. Choose peace. ➕
“He who accepts evil without protesting against it, is really cooperating with it.” -Martin Luther King, Jr.
