New Lutheran Quote of the Day

Why on earth did the Lord make something like you?  There is only one of you - ever has been, ever will be.  The Lord multiplies His delight.  He doesn't have the same delight in any hundred of the same.  He has a different delight in each unique one of us, and He invites us into delighting with Him in each one. -- Dr. Norman Nagel, Selected Sermons, p. 161.

He even delights in people who win such a stupid game as Liverpool, yes?

It always shocks my people when I remind them that God doesn't love everyone the same.

It makes some sense to them when I remind them that they don't love their children the same (in the same precise way).
