Dear SLHS Families, Students, and Community,

Friday, January 15th, is Martin Luther King, Jr.’s, birthday. The United States will observe Martin

Luther King, Jr., Day on Monday, January 18th; a day set aside to observe his birthday. The

holiday was signed into law by President Ronald Reagan on November 2nd, 1983. Martin Luther

King, Jr., was a key proponent of the Civil Rights Movement in which individuals protested racial discrimination and injustice in federal and state laws; and voiced support for changing these laws to reflect these views. However, they wanted to do this with nonviolent activism and non-confrontational speech.

I think about that time in America’s history and compare it to today. I used to not be able to fathom all the hate and violence that people went through and felt. I used to not be able to imagine the reaction of people using physical violence against another person because of what they said or what they stood for or for the color of their skin. Martin Luther King, Jr., simply wanted to talk about and discuss these issues for positive change. Instead of individuals talking with him, Martin Luther King, Jr., as assassinated on April 4th, 1968.

Then I think about this past week; the culmination of the past 2 months since the presidential election. The violent attacks on individuals due to differing political beliefs. The deadly attack on the U.S. Capitol building. Why? What are the reasons? What makes people so agitated that they feel violence is the only answer? Now, this is not a political rant. I do not care if you are a democrat, republican, or independent; conservative, liberal, or somewhere in between; bipartisan or partisan. This is all about Christ.

What we all can agree upon is that everyone of us is sinful and that we live in a sinful world. As Paul states in his letter to the Roman church, “For there is no distinction: For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:22b-23). However, does that mean we have to follow what the world says? No, by no means; “…and are justified by His grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as a propitiation by His blood, to be received by faith” (Romans 3:24-25a). “And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God” (1st Corinthians 6:11). This means we are set apart! We are called to be

different than the world. We are called to emulate Christ!

God gave us (Christians) the 10 commandments. If we look at the 4th commandment, God tells

us to “honor your father and your mother”. Martin Luther gives us the explanation: We should fear and love God so that we do not despise or anger our parents and other authorities, but honor them, serve and obey them, love and cherish them (Luther’s Small Catechism with Explanation). How many of us have honored, served, obeyed, loved, and cherished our elected leaders, even those who we disagree with politically? I admit that I have not always done this.

If we look at the 8th commandment, God says “you shall not give false testimony against your

neighbor.” Martin Luther gives us the explanation: We should fear and love God so that we do not tell lies about our neighbor, betray him, slander him, or hurt his reputation, but defend him, speak well of him, and explain everything in the kindest way (Luther’s Small Catechism with Explanation). How many of us have heard a rumor about a particular person and instead of letting it die with us, we pass it on to someone else (maybe even with our own embellishments)? Or how many of us have heard a conspiracy theory and taken it as the truth? Where is the proof? Have you defended the person the rumor or theory is about, even if you do not like the person? Have you spoken well of them?

Jesus was once asked what the greatest commandment was: “‘Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?’ And He said to him, ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets’” (Matthew 22:36-40).

Are you loving your neighbor as yourself? Maybe you are asking, “who is my neighbor?” Jesus very clearly tells us who our neighbor is in the Parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37). Our neighbor is not just the person who lives next to us; but also includes our family, friends, acquaintances, enemies, and those we disagree with. Everyone is our neighbor. Are you treating every person as you would like and want to be treated?

As Christians, we are to put on the robe of righteousness and live as children of Christ, fully redeemed and sanctified. “…seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator. Here there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free; but Christ is all, and in all. Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved,

compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body” (Colossians 3:9b-15a).

Have a great and blessed week. In Christ,

Mr. Bult
