From the Word: The refining pot is for silver, and the furnace for gold; but the Lord tests hearts. (Proverbs 17:3)

From the Confessions: The Large Catechism, Introduction

What is the entire Psalter but reflections and exercises based on the First Commandment? Now I know it to be true that these lazy paunches and presumptuous souls do not understand a single psalm, much less the whole Scriptures. Yet they pretend to know and despise the Catechism, which is a compendium and brief summary of all the Holy Scriptures.

Pulling It Together: A neighbor told me yesterday that she thinks, “this is a wake-up call for America.” Then she added, “I hope we’re listening.” She was referring to the Covid-19 crisis, as well as the civil unrest in our country. I hope we are listening too, but I hope our ears are tuned to the correct frequency.

Prayer: Lord, it is you — not the times — who tests my soul, and I trust you to bring me through. Amen.
