I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear. – Martin Luther King, Jr.
To think of love in a time when so many chose hate is a great example of what made Martin Luther King Jr such a great leader.
At a time when life wasn’t fair and he had every reason to hate his fellow man – he had the wisdom to know it wasn’t worth it – for him.
The cost of storing up hatred in our hearts (even when it is warranted and justified) isn’t worth it.
Whether it’s because someone cut you off in traffic or you are being beaten and mistreated because of the color of your skin – hate isn’t worth it.
We may not (and hopefully never will) face so stark a choice, but hate can creep in if we let it.
It isn’t worth it!
Take it from someone who would know.
Make it a great day.
