Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

There are always two vices in ingratitude:  falsehood and dishonesty.  An ungrateful man is a liar because he attributes good deeds to himself.  He is dishonest because he does not repay the One from whom he has received the good deeds.  -- Blessed Johann Gerhard, Postilla II:155.
