A Day of Service

Monday, January 20, 2014, many of us will have the day off as the nation celebrates the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. To truly honor Dr. King’s legacy, however, this holiday is not a day off but a day of service. For as Dr. King once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?'”

Somewhere in America:

– A story needs to be read to a child.

– A family needs to be fed.

– A playground needs to be repaired.

Jesus said in Matthew 9:37 (NLT) The harvest is so great, but the workers are so few”   On Monday, January 20, 2014, many of us will have the day off as the nation celebrates the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. To truly honor Dr. King’s legacy, however, this holiday is not a day off but a day of service.  For as Dr. King once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?'”

Each year, Americans across the country answer that question by coming together on the King Holiday to serve their neighbors and communities.

Day of Service Frount

I hope that you will take some time on Monday or during the weekend to be of service in your community.  Go to the official King Holiday web page www.mlkday.gov  to find out more.  I will be posting pictures of my service day on Facebook, and to spur others to action, I hope you will do the same.

Someone in your community needs your service. Will you give it?
