New Lutheran Quote of the Day

We honor our ancestors when we give heed to that Word which they so fearfully carried and so faithfully taught.  Our honor to them is do our task of listening faithfully, trusting boldly, loving lavishly, and passing on diligently what we have heard. By that Word of God we are slain and vivified before God; we are guided and sustained; we are corrected and rebuked. —Dr. Kenneth Korby, The Pastoral Office and the Priesthood of Believers, Lord Jesus Christ, Will You Not Stay?, p. 347.
