Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

Far rather grieve for the virtues which thou hast not, than glory over those which thou hast. Rather conceal thy virtues, and make known thy sins, for indeed it is to be feared that if thou dost openly boast of thy treasure of good works, the devil may rob thee of it through thy pride. - Johann Gerhard, *Sacred Meditations* XXXIV
