While doing my prep work for this Sunday's sermon, I ran across a quote which was very fitting for many men who serve in the Office of the Ministry. From Luther's House Postils (volume six of the "Complete Sermons of Martin Luther") page 90. Luther is preaching on this Sunday's text for the one year lectionary
Now here is what Luther had to say in his sermon on the text:
If you know a pastor who is going through a tough time share this with him. For even his ministry is but "a little while".
I would strongly encourage regular reading of Luther's sermons for your own studies or devotional life.
