Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

Even though Jacob had the angel of God on his side, he was still afraid.  Even the holy children of God are not courageous adventurers at every passing moment, for they know that the devil is a knave and the world is false, and that often many an honorable man has truly had to sweat and swelter, even for a good cause.  We should take comfort in this whenever our timid hearts feel weak. -- Blessed Valerius Herberger, The Great Works of God III/IV, p. 223.
