Old Lutheran Quote of the Day
Our Lord Jesus has an unusual way of managing His Christians. The greater His saint the greater the cross that saint must bear. The more He loves a man, the more roughly He rakes him over the coals of anguish. No one should become a Christian with the intent of having a good life in this world. Abraham's case here clearly shows this. -- Blessed Valerius Herberger, The Great Works of God III/IV, p. 84.
