Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

Abraham's servant stood by the well and there met his young master's bride and adorned her.  God's servants stand by the healing well of the Holy Gospel and the most worthy sacraments, preaching, baptizing and distributing the Holy Supper.  There they meet the bride of their Lord Jesus and present her with the treasures and jewels of heaven, that they may be adorned and pleasing to the Lord Jesus.  -- Blessed Valerius Herberger, The Great Works of God III/IV, p. 138.
