Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

Look at Adam, Abraham, Isaac, and all the saintly fathers. As soon as they began to rely on their own counsels apart from the Word of God, everything immediately slipped away from them, and they accomplished nothing. For unless God has preceded men with His Word, they accomplish nothing good. Without the action and the Word of God we do nothing, even though we may begin something.—Martin Luther, Commentary on Ecclesiastes 1.
