Luther the Shrewd

Sharing Options

One of the books I read Sunday mornings before worship is Luther’s Table Talk. I love that man. He frequently cracks me up, as he did this morning with his comments about pastoral hubris.

“We want to set things straight and make everything right. To this God says, ‘Well, then, go ahead! Be clever and do a good job! Be a preacher and make the people godly! Be a lord and mend the people’s ways! Get to it at once!'”
