6th Annual Mels Love Land #Next100 Day 11 on Soundcloud.

A short love inspired meeting this morning remindsed me of these words spoken into the light of a new tomorrow my Martin Luther King, Jr.

“I love you. I would rather die than hate you.” Truth. Love. Now.

It was a surprise to be met in this way this morning but it was a great and powerful reminder to honor a man whose belief in the principles of Love in action as a social force of transformation ignited a movement that exploded heinous injustices across our land that reverberate through our hearts today.

Many people are standing up for love right now and I am grateful for all of you….

Enjoy this moment of remembering….

May love surround you and work through you.

Fuller words from Martin Luther King, Jr.

I say to you, “I love you. I would rather die than hate you. And I’m foolish enough to believe that through the power of this love somewhere, men of the most recalcitrant bent will be transformed. And then we will be in God’s kingdom. We will be able to matriculate into the university of eternal life because we had the power to love our enemies, to bless those persons that cursed us, to even decide to be good to those persons who hated us, and we even prayed for those persons who despitefully used us. Oh God, help us in our lives and in all of our attitudes, to work out this controlling force of love, this controlling power that can solve every problem that we confront in all areas. Oh, we talk about politics; we talk about the problems facing our atomic civilization. Grant that all men will come together and discover that as we solve the crisis and solve these problems “the international problems, the problems of atomic energy, the problems of nuclear energy, and yes, even the race problem” let us join together in a great fellowship of love and bow down at the feet of Jesus. Give us this strong determination.”
