Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

Isaac was born of the free princess Sarah who, unlike Hagar, knew no toil to speak of.  Likewise, all blessed children of God are born of God to everlasting freedom, and they do not boast of their glorious works and hard labor.  Rather, when we have done everything, we say, "we are unprofitable servants" [Luke 17:10]. -- Blessed Valerius Herberger, The Great Works of God III/IV, p. 73.
