Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

Consider the manner of God's giving. You will find that God, the greatest and best giver, gives with a bounty that cannot be measured. For what he gives is not reckoned as something merited, or because he is under obligation, but, as the words read, out of love. Thus he is a giver, who gives from the heart, out of boundless, divine love, as Christ says, "For God so loved the world."—Blessed Martin Luther, House Postils 2:196 (Sermon for Monday after Pentecost)
