Walther Quote of the Day

“Finally, a Christian should not think that his goal in life is merely to give no one offense. No, Paul says, if he wants to be a Christian, he must always become more perfect in his zeal for a life of good works, for the service of God, for prayer, and for the hearing and reading of God’s Word. He must always be more frank in the confession of his faith, more faithful in his office and calling, more forgiving toward his enemies, more consoling toward his friends, more conscientious in his trade, more willing to devote himself to the things of the Church and the kingdom of God. In short, he must become an example for all and let his ‘light shine before others, so that they may see [his] good works, and give glory to [his] Father who is in heaven’ (Matthew 5:16).”
