Luther Quote of the Day

The exercises of faith are necessary for the godly; for without them their faith would grow weak and lukewarm, yes, would eventually be extinguished. But from this source they assuredly learn what faith is; and when they have been tried, they grow in the knowledge of the Son of God and become so strong and firm that they can rejoice and glory in misfortunes no less than in days of prosperity and can regard any trial at all as nothing more than a little cloud or a fog which vanishes forthwith.

Luther’s works, vol. 5: Lectures on Genesis: Chapters 26-30 p 56
