Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

This is the one thing we must ever seek in Bethlehem - that Bethlehem begets in us that divine love - a selfless, supernatural love, which is the Bethlehem love, a love which alone can ease the heartache of the world.  When we fail in our relationships with our fellowmen, either at home or in business, it is because our love is tainted with self-interest.  But it is only the divine love which can make us irresistible.  And this love alone can save society. - Von Schenk, *The Presence* p. 47
