I believe it is no mere coincidence that the U.S. national holiday celebrating the inspiring life of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. (Jan. 16) is positioned within the same week as the Jan. 20 presidential inauguration of Donald J. Trump.
I believe a king has wise and holy advice for the president.
If King could advise Trump face to face, he would surely urge him to always do what Jesus would do. And likewise, to always refrain from doing what Jesus would not do. King would advise Trump to humbly read the Gospel every day to gain divine insight into what the merciful, compassionate, nonviolent Jesus would do today.
With the Gospel as his guide, King said, "The aftermath of nonviolence is the creation of the beloved community, while the aftermath of violence is tragic bitterness."
