New Lutheran Quote of the Day
But what we can learn from the Reformation is that the solution to our family problems will not be a matter of more laws, more rules to live by, or more principals for successful living. The major contribution of the Reformation was to place the gospel of Jesus Christ—justification by grace through faith in the atoning work of Jesus Christ—at the center of every facet of the Christian life, including the family. And the key to making that application and renewing contemporary families is the doctrine of vocation.—Gene Veith and Dcns. Mary Moerbe, Family Vocation, p. 20.
