Luther's "Christian Guide for Each Day"

Thursday 23 January 2014 at 06:00 am.

23 January

But those of us who are strong should bear the weaknesses of the weak and not just please ourselves. Romans 15:1.

One is reluctant to tolerate weaknesses in others, but instead requires of the other that he be perfect. Here they think and talk only about each other, and the one wants to get out here, the other wants to get out there, so that he has peace and quiet from the other one and be exempted from reluctance. However anyone who can, he leaves the others and pushes them away from himself, adorns himself accordingly and says he is doing it for the sake of justice, doesn't want to know and mingle with bad people, but instead only pious and good people like himself. This evil reigns mostly in those who, above all else, think they have more faith and lead a more respectable life than others; they boast and exalt themselves; what is not equal to them has to fall, they judge it, they despise it, and they are the proud, pretty kitten in the house.

WOW!  This was grammatically difficult to translate - I hope I got it right.  And Luther's thoughts have me reminding myself:  ELMER HOHLE, HUMBLE YOURSELF UNDER THE MIGHTY HAND OF GOD!  God be merciful to me, a sinner!  I am weak, but Jesus is strong.  Forgive my sins, Lord!

In Christ,

Elmer H.
