Good Morning February 15

A colleague of mine pointed out a quote from Martin Luther concerning education. “Where the Holy Scripture does not rule I certainly advise no one to send his child. Everyone not unceasingly occupied with the Word of God must become corrupt; therefore we must see what people in the higher schools are and grow up to be…  I greatly fear that schools for higher learning are wide gates to hell if they do not diligently teach the Holy Scriptures and impress them on the young folk.” That was written almost 500 years ago and to a society far more homogeneous than ours today. Yet there is truth here for Christians.  All life is to be guided first, by the truth of the sacrifice our Lord made on our behalf so that we could be a part of Him. And then by an ever deepening understanding of the Scriptures He gave us. That is what makes a difference in all aspects of life.
