The legacy of Martin Luther King is not just what he did for civil rights but his message of service.
“Everybody can be great…because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.” – Dr Martin Luther King, Jr.
Remember, you don’t have to be a full time missionary or social activist to serve. Just do something to make the world a little better.
I believe that service is not only a noble thing to do, it’s the best way to lead a truly fulfilling and significant life. I also believe Happiness the peace of mind that comes from feeling that I am living a worthy life in the company of people I love and in the service of something bigger than myself.
common delusion is to think of service only in terms of sacrifice. Service is a reliable road to a series of emotions that enlarge our life and uplift our spirits – satisfaction, pride, worthiness, fulfillment, and even outright joy in seeing our efforts improve someone else’s life. If you haven’t made the time (You’ll never “find” it.) or haven’t felt the inclination to help, please try it. You will be astounded to discover how good it feels and how much you have been missing. -Michael Josephson
“In about the same degree as you are helpful, you will be happy.” – Karl Reiland
“One of the deep secrets of life is that all that is really worth doing is what we do for others.” — Lewis Carroll
ONE OF THE BEST WAYS TO HONOR THE LEGACY OF MARTIN LUTHER KING IS TO SERVE.
