Martin Luther

The heart of the giver makes the gift dear and precious.

I would not have preachers torment their hearers, and detain them with long and tedious preaching.

Martin Luther
Earth has nothing more tender than a woman's heart when it is the abode of piety.
Martin Luther

Let us not lose the Bible, but with diligence, in fear and invocation of God, read and preach it. While that remains and flourishes, all prospers with the state; 'tis head and empress of all arts and faculties. Let but divinity fall, and I would not give a straw for the rest.

Martin Luther
Father and Mother are apostles, bishops and priests to their children, for it is they who make them acquainted with the gospel.
Martin Luther

Whenever I have prayed earnestly, I have always received more than I asked for. God may delay, but He always comes.

Martin Luther
Every evening brings us nearer God.
