It’s always interesting to consider how our lives would be if there was no racial discrimination, if everybody got along and really cared about one another.

As another Martin Luther King, Jr. day passes through, it is nice to see some taking the time to celebrate the memory of Dr. King throughout Wichita, Kansas. King was a man who cared and did his best to make a difference in our world. Granted, many were against him, but what he stood for is something we should never forget.

Dr. King wanted equality and freedom for everyone, whether black, white, yellow, or polka-dotted. He wanted help for the poor and those who were helpless against a system that often destroys man’s dignity and self-worth.

Jesus Christ came into the world to open a door for all people, all nations to come together as one united nation. God created us equal in Him. He loves and cares for all of us the same. He does not show favoritism. Sure, the Jews are His chosen, but they were set apart to set an example for us. Unfortunately, they rebelled against God and sinned numerous times against Him through their idolatry.

If you read through all books of the prophets in Scripture, there is almost a repeat of this in every book. Each time, God gave His people a chance to repent of their wickedness. When Israel refused to obey God, they suffered His judgment. Yet every time, a remnant were spared because He did not want to see them extinguished forever. By doing this, He gave us all hope.

Although Dr. King is no longer with us, his legacy lives on. Even now, his famous “I have a dream” speech is still giving hope to people who need to hear it and who believe there is good in every person. That everyone is created equal and deserves fair treatment.

As Dr. King gave his people hope for a better tomorrow, so does God.

Jesus Christ is still King.

His Word and His laws never change. Through Him, we still have hope for a glorious future and must always look to Him for our freedom.

We should never look back except to learn from those who have gone before us to, hopefully, a better place…where everyone is free…and equal.

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” (Jeremiah 29:11 KJV)
