Happy Soul Food Friday!
“…I say to you this morning that the first question that the priest asked was the first question that I asked on that Jericho Road in Atlanta known as Simpson Road. The first question that the Levite asked was, “If I stop to help this man, what will happen to me?” But the good Samaritan came by and he reversed the question. Not, “What will happen to me if I stop to help this man?” but “What will happen to this man if I do not stop to help him?” This was why that man was good and great. He was great because he was willing to take a risk for humanity; he was willing to ask, “What will happen to this man?” not “What will happen to me?” –Dr. MLK
“Everybody can be great…because anybody can serve…
You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”
– Dr. Martin Luther King
