Almost exactly a year before he was assassinated on 4 April 1968, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered a stirring sermon at the New Covenant Baptist Church in Chicago, Illinois on Sunday, 9 April 1967. Dr. King preached that day about “The Three Dimensions of a Complete Life“.
In this ageless sermon, Dr. King referred to the three dimensions of life as the Length, Breadth, and Height of a life. These three dimensions represent an inward concern for one’s own personal welfare – ends and ambitions, an outward concern for others, and an upward reach toward God.
