Dr. King – An Extraordinary Ordinary Man

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was an extraordinary man – brilliant, well educated, a great leader, courageous and visionary. He was also quite ordinary in so many other ways – he made mistakes, did things he wished he hadn’t and sinned just like every other human being. But what matters most about Dr. King is that God chose him, used him and is still enabling his legacy to inspire us to seek justice for all God’s children. Today we give thanks that God did what God so often does – chooses a man or woman who is not perfect, but willing to get on board with God. We need more extraordinary ordinary people like Dr. King. Perhaps more to the point, we need to be willing to be more like Dr. King ourselves. Because there’s still so much work to be done. And God is calling each of us to do something about it.
