King 22

“Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided missiles and misguided men.” ┬áMartin Luther King Jr.

A reminder from an earthly King that without the true King of Kings, we remain desperately off course.

Join me over at the Sunday Community, hosted by Deidra Riggs. Happy Sunday!



  1. Hi Alison! That quote from MLK is just so ‘on target’. What good are earthly things without faith? He actually makes you feel like it’s a dangerous situation. All in two sentences. Amazing.

    Powerful post today.

    • You know, you’re right, Ceil. He does make a case in those sentences that it is a dangerous situation to be in. Hopefully we will heed his sound advice!

  2. I agree with Ceil! Powerful message today. I hope you are having a wonderful Sunday.

    • I remember you sharing about visiting the monuments, Joi. I’m awed every time I pass MLK’s monument, which is each day as I drive to work. Have a great Labor Day!

    • Thanks, Hope. MLK had a way of presenting truth so that you are forced to think outside the box. We are the richer for his admonitions and observations.

  11. Quote is great but y did I find out some things about MLK Jr that I never know. i’m not judging him but I didn’t know he used to smoke cigs.

    by the way I go to church on Sat or Sun. We have service on both days which is so convenient because my husband sometimes has a wedding to DJ on Saturdays so we get to go on Sundays. It’s less crowded on Sundays tho.
