FAVORITE QUOTES OF MARTIN LUTHER KING JR



The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education.

Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend.
 
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
 


Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.

~I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
   
 
I have a dream today.I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted,every hill and mountain shall be made low,the rough places will be made plain,and the crooked places will be made straight,and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed,and all flesh shall see it together.

VESSEL OF HONOR

 Image result for chosen vessel unto God

A chosen vessel unto God
Willingly I gladly to choose
To worship, love and serve Christ
A vessel fit for the Master's use.

A chosen vessel for His glory
Sanctified, purified and justified
To gladly proclaim the gospel story
The glory of Christ Jesus crucified.

Chosen to proclaim the good news
To the world by the power of His Word
A vocation so noble and precious
Proclaiming that Christ is Lord.


For by His truth I'm set free
To live a life that brings glory to the Lord
Letting His light shine through me
Manifesting His glory to the world.

A vessel of holiness and honor
Living a life of peace and power
Walking in the wonder of divine favor 
Enjoying heaven's blissful shower. 

 But in a great house, there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor.  Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work.
2 Timothy 2:20-21(NKJV)
