Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

You did not position us facing the earth like mindless livestock, but upright, facing heaven.  For livestock are only created to eat the mast and serve man's needs.  We, on the other hand, were not made merely to gaze on this world's good but to set our heart and mind on heaven and to pay attention to You.  -- Valerius Herberger, The Great Works of God, p. 120
