STOP AND THINK – Everybody can be great … because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. … You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love. (Martin Luther King, Jr., late civil rights leader)

Today Dr. King is honored in the United States as, perhaps, the most significant leader in the civil rights movement in the 20th century. His legacy demonstrates that the greatest leaders are those who seek to serve others. Not everyone will achieve his prominence, but everyone can make significant advances in his or her community by serving others.

Whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant … just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve. (Matthew 20:26-28)
