It is fine to be zealous, provided the purpose is good,…(Galatians 4:18)

Warning: Be wary of the many who are using Martin Luther King Day, who had a good dream, into a personal nightmare for others because of their selfish goals. In King County Washington there are power-brokers making a mockery of Martin Luther King’s speech. The King County Court system, with varied ancillary spin-offs, spin-up rhetoric to prejudicially empower themselves has produced a cauldron of court corruption. It is both narcissistic and Machiavellian in the same cauldron of legal witchcraft.

Among the most quoted lines of the speech include “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.” – Wikipedia

Lesson: Keep your love for Jesus because your enemy will seek to place a noble goal in your path to make you zealous for those not of God’s household. (See Galatians 4:18)

(timeanddate.com)—Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. summary: Martin Luther King, Jr. became the predominant leader in the Civil Rights Movement to end racial segregation and discrimination in America during the 1950s and 1960s and a leading spokesperson for nonviolent methods of achieving social change. His eloquence as a speaker and his personal charisma, combined with a deeply rooted determination to establish equality among all races despite personal risk won him a world-wide following. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Price in 1964 and was selected by Time magazine as its Man of the Year. His “I Have a Dream” speech, which is now considered to be among the great speeches of American history, is frequently quoted. His success in galvanizing the drive for civil rights, however, made him the target of conservative segregationists who believed firmly in the superiority of the white race and feared social change. He was arrested over 20 times and his home was bombed. Ultimately, he was assassinated on April 4, 1968, on the balcony of a motel where he was staying in Memphis. A monument to Dr. King was unveiled in the national capital in 2012.
