[CF Devotionals] 2014-01-21 - Remembering MLK

- - - - - -

Today as we celebrate the life and legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr., we present some Biblical principles that Dr King exemplified. May we do likewise.

Matthew 5:39  (Jesus said,) But I say to you, do not resist an evil person; but whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also.

Matthew 5:44-45 (Jesus said,) But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.

John 15:13 (Jesus said,) Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.

Isaiah 1:17b-c Seek justice, Reprove the ruthless, Defend the orphan, Plead for the widow.

Luke 6:31 (Jesus said,) Treat others the same way you want them to treat you.
