“Faith is taking the first step even when you can’t see the whole staircase.” MLK, Jr.

“Faith is taking the first step even when you can’t see the whole staircase.” MLK, Jr.
Martin Luther King, Jr. courageously pursued his dreams, even without seeing the finished picture. Let’s teach our kids (and ourselves) to take that step of faith to go after our dreams when we don’t “see the whole staircase”. What are our children’s goals and dreams (even if they’re small at this point)? Let’s have them finish this sentence: One of my dreams or goals is _________________________.
Let’s also take in the inspiring words of Martin Luther King, Jr. as we celebrate his dream of bringing ALL people together “into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood…”
“I have a dream today … I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain hall be made low. The rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight. And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together…With this faith we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope. With this faith we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood.” Martin Luther King, Jr.
