This week, I plan to introduce to you some of my favorite "sticky" pieces. One every day.
Martin Luther starts us off:
"No man is so high or may rise so high
that he need not fear becoming the lowliest.
Conversely, no one has fallen, or may fall,
so deeply as to preclude all hope of becoming the highest.
By saying: 'The first shall be last'
Christ takes all presumption away from you and forbids you
to exalt yourself above any prostitute,
even though you were Abraham, David, Peter, or Paul.
But by saying: 'The last shall be first' He guards you
against all despair and forbids you to cast yourself
under the feet of any saint, even though
you were Pilate, Heord, Sodom and Gomorrah."
