January is a month when people remember Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s life. One of his great quotes is “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is ‘what are you doing for others?”

This was not said by someone who had all the riches in the world, or by someone who had all his rights and privileges. It was said by a courageous man at a time of civil unrest and division. Instead of being constrained by his own situation, Rev King chose to help humanity in the moment.

So life’s most persistent question for you today is: “What are you doing for others?” and more importantly, “are you waiting for things to be perfect for you before you choose to do something for others?”

Choose not to wait. Choose today to help someone in need, a neighbor, a coworker, a classmate. Choose to allow goodness and mercy to rule all your actions.

I urge you to do it today.
