This week's Motivation Monday Quotes for 20th April 2020 comes from Martin Luther King Jr.
Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase.Martin Luther King Jr.
Interpretation Of The Quote
I believe Martin Luther King was encouraging people to take the first step, to take action towards something, even if they didn't know what the future looks like as in this quote, the whole staircase. To take such an action required faith or confidence that the rest of the steps would come.
Using a staircase illustration, what it implies is that the entire staircase exists but we can only see as far as the first step. Since our limitations are as far as we can see, we need to decide if we will take the first step. If we take the steps to go up the staircase, we can see further as we move up the staircase.
Many interpret faith as belief in God. That may be true too and likely to be both, as the challenges during King's era involves believing that change can take place if we only have faith to take action.
The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines faith as:
- firm belief in something for which there is no proof
- complete trust
- something that one believed in, especially with strong conviction (including religious beliefs)
- allegiance to duty or a person
