Personal Philosophy

Quote:
“Human progress never rolls in on wheels of inevitability; it comes through the tireless efforts of men willing to be coworkers with God.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

Scripture:
For these light momentary afflictions are preparing us for an eternal weight of glory as we look not to the things that are seen but the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are temporary but the things that are unseen are eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:17-18
