New Lutheran Quote of the Day

The Word of God confronts us with a reality quite at odds with anything we might stir up within ourselves. -- Matthew Harrison, *A Little Book on Joy* p. 50.

Okay, I have to ask, even though it may seem like a silly question: Do YOU decide what the Quote of the Day is going to be, or do you cut and paste these from another source? The suggested reading from the Book of Concord from today's Treasury was Formula/Solid Declaration II 67-73. This New Lutheran Quote of the Day fits perfectly with 68: "The new birth is not complete, but only begun in us. The struggle of the flesh against the spirit remains even in the elect and truly regenerate people. (Galatians 5:17)"

BTW, today was one of my "cold and weak" days. UGH!! So ... Thanks! I needed this!

I just pick something that strikes my fancy on a given day. Nothing intentional on my part to match anything else. Can't recommend the Harrison book highly enough. I'm really enjoying it.
