Repaving the Road

I wasn’t able to get anything posted yesterday, so I’ll just do this today.  Since Monday was Martin Luther King, Jr. Day , I thought I’d post a quote of his that always makes me think.

“We are called to play the Good Samaritan on life’s roadside…but one day we must come to see that the whole Jericho road must be transformed so men and women will not be constantly  beaten and robbed.  True compassion is more than flinging a coin to a beggar.  It comes to see that a system that produces beggars needs to be repaved.  We are called to be the Good Samaritan, but after you lift so many people out of the ditch you start to ask, maybe the whole road to Jericho needs to be repaved.”

 – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
