New Lutheran Quote of the Day

Hallowing the work of vocation in home and market place is the work of the priestly people in sacrifices offered. In some ways it begins with the simple question, "Why work?" Some will say, "I have to pay the bills. That is why I work." Others will say, "I am in debt. I must work." When the members of the priesthood and the pastor shepherding them begin to think like that, they become worldly. —Dr. Kenneth Korby, The Pastoral Office and the Priesthood of Believers, Lord Jesus Christ, Will You Not Stay?, p. 342.
