A true leader
Just the mention of the name, Martin Luther King Jr. stirs up images of powerful leadership.
He was one of the greatest leaders in history as he fought tirelessly against racial inequality.
Those of you who know me know that I love to read and study anything to do with leadership. I am challenged and intrigued by quotes from various people on this subject. I have included quite a few of my favorites below from Dr. King:
“Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable… Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals.”
“We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies.”
A true leader…willing to die for what He believed in. God, give me this type of devotion in my life.
