Quotes [#1]

I love quotes. I love collecting them, writing them down, and re-reading them from time to time.

I found this quote in a book I just finished. I found it to be not only excellent, but quite challenging and convicting as well.

"If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare composed 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.'" - Martin Luther King

"Who did his job well." Is that not our goal to hear this? "Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master." (Matt. 25:21)
