New Lutheran Quote of the Day

When God says you must love Him more than wife or child, it sounds like He is wanting to cut back your love for them.  The opposite is the case.  You love your wife and child best when you love God most.  Then your love for them can be sound, healthy, full, and sure, and your love for them is held within His love for you.  This is true also for your enjoyment of your car, refrigerator and potatoes. -- Dr. Norman Nagel, Selected Sermons, p. 343.
