Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

The exhortation is that we diligently learn and study the Word and grow in its understanding, so that we may be filled with the light of this glory. Those who regard this light as a treasure hold all glory of the flesh to be nothing. This is what we see in the martyrs. By comparison with the Word they spurned all things.—Luther on the OT Reading for the Feast of Epiphany, Isaiah 60:1ff.
