Today, we celebrate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. I am thankful for the sacrifices he made and the incredible impact he had on our lives and world. Dr. King has many famous quotes but the one that keeps sticking out to me today is “…not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” God teaches this same principle in 1 Samuel 16:7:
But the LORD said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The LORD does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.”
Let’s live it out!
