A Worthy Thought for the Day

Rev. Max Phillips shared a quote from Martin Luther that is worthy of our reflection and embrace regarding vocation.

“Our foolishness consists in laying too much stress upon the show of works and when these do not glitter as something extraordinary we regard them as of no value; and poor fools that we are, we do not see that God has attached and bound this precious treasure, namely His Word, to such common works as filial obedience, external, domestic, or civil affairs, so as to include them in His order and command, which He wishes us to accept, the same as though He Himself had appeared from heaven. What would you do if Christ Himself with all the angels were visibly to descend, and command you in your home to sweep your house and wash the pans and kettles? How happy you would feel, and would not know how to act for joy, not for the work’s sake, but that you knew that thereby you were serving Him, who is greater than heaven and earth.”
