The Best Street Sweeper

I just got through watching the Michael Jackson Memorial on line and it really made me think about a lot. One thing that stood out to me was what Martin Luther King, III said. He said be the best street sweeper you can be. Whatever you do in life be the best at Michael was.

Whatever issues you have with Michael you cannot deny he had talent and he perfected what he did. He was an entertainer and he was the King of Pop. He practiced, worked hard, and studied to be the best he could be.

My question is do we do that as human beings? Do we strive to be the best at whatever we do? Just because you sweep a street, or empty garbage, or might be a cashier does not mean that your work is not valuable. Every person has a role to play and we all function better when everyone does their job to the best of their ability.
Just something to think about....

Oh, one last thought. To us he was the King of Pop, but to his kids he was their father, their daddy.
