Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

Now when Abraham's woe could grow no worse, it ceased.  Likewise, when God lets us fall into the greatest adversity, He then shows us love and favor in the most comforting way... It was not God's intent that the child should die, but that the bloody death and deep obedience of Jesus Christ should be depicted in this work. -- Blessed Valerius Herberger, The Great Works of God III/IV, p. 89.
