Martin Luther King Jr. on Work

by William Norvell

This short speech (about 3 minutes) by Martin Luther King Jr. inspires me each and every day to work for the glory of God and not for the glory of man. 

In 3 minutes, I feel that MLK really sums up the basics of faith and work integration.  In all honesty, I try to come back and listen to this 20+ times a year.  I am looking for a place to hang the quote on the wall, but MLK's voice is so much more inspiring than the written quote.  He was one of a kind with regards to motivation for the gospel.

Great Quote: 

“If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as a Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, ‘Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.”
