The NFL playoffs are fascinating. The entire weekend was filled with drama, big plays, and stunning comebacks. In 3 of the 4 games, teams made improbable charges to go from sure loss to having a chance at the end. While 2 of those teams didn’t end up prevailing, the “never give up” attitude was certainly on display.
Today, we as a nation honor Martin Luther King Jr. This is a man that also exemplified the “never give up” attitude. For nearly a full decade, he fought for equality in the face of immense turmoil. In the end, it cost him his life. In truth, the “game” didn’t end there. The seeds he planted grew into change for a country that needed it.
The lesson for each of us? Be ever vigilant; be ever confident; and never give up. Be unleashed.
“Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.”
~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
