Quote of the Day – From Martin Luther’s “Large Catechism”

The Fourth Commandment:  “You shall honour your mother and father.”

“…children forget their parents, as we all forget God, and no one takes thought how God feeds, guards, and protects us and how many blessings of body and soul he bestows upon us.  Especially when an evil hour comes do we rage and grumble impatiently and forget all the blessings we have received throughout our life.  Just so we act toward our parents, and there is no child that recognizes this, unless he led to it by the Holy Spirit.”
