Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

Ultimately this insight must characterize all our sacrifices, our works and our gifts as well as our faith and our worship. Because God is the Creator, Redeemer and Transformer and because we are always only the recipients of His bounty, whatever we plead before Him, whatever we give Him, whatever we do for His sake is always under the signature, "All things come of Thee, O Lord, and of Thine own have we given Thee." -- A. C. Piepkorn, *The Church* p. 241

I could never refer to God as "Transformer" because all that would be in my mind is "...more than meets the eye...And Decepticons!" Ah, childhood...what a blissful time.

LOL. I remember them, but I was too old to play with them.
