“Sitting down, Jesus called the Twelve and said, “If anyone wants to be first, he must be the very last, and the servant of all.” -Mark 9:35
We Quote, Historic Figure, Nat Turner as a reference to Mark 9:35. Nat Turner will always be remembered and recognized as one of the Bravest Black Historic Figure who ever stood on the grounds of this earth. For those who may not know of the great Nate Turner, here is a little history lesson.
August 1831, A black man by the name Nat Turner, led the only slave rebellion to greatly impacted U.S history, and ignited fear within the white folks of the White South.
Our quote is dedicated to Nat Turner because, as he quotes “…Christ had laid down the yoke he had borne for the sins of me, and that I should take it on and fight against the serpent, for the time was fast approaching when the first should be last and the last should be first.”
We believe, beginning first and ending last is all about sacrifice. In history, we’ve sacrificed a lot, even against our will we’ve made sacrifices.
We also believe that we sacrifice a lot on our journey to make it to our career, even proposing within our career, to not necessarily be the first, but to pave the way for others. We believe Nat Turner believed the same.
